Bleeding Hearts

About this design:

I was inspired by a piece one day out of one of my favorite books, "A Charming Exchange" by Ruth Rae and Kelly Snelling. Sadly, my book is misplaced somewhere in my home by my hubby, so he is searching for it, darn it! :) This piece is currently up for sale on my website I just reopened at and I offer free shipping and 20% off all pieces. I love to use hardware store finds to save money but also because I love to use the material. I kind of think this piece has a kind of Gothic flair or even slightly steampunkish look.


annealed steel wire, Cinnabar, blackstone, swarovski crystals, seed beads, silver plated jump rings

    Cinnabar is one of my weaknesses, I can’t pass it up if I see it somewhere. This is great. I love it. Something about it keeps drawing me back to it in the gallery. Great piece.
