heart necklace and earings

how easy can it get
ceramic heart beads  found at the john bead outlet for $3
a little wire , a splash of red and a few jewelry findings

getting ready for valentines day

 red is my favorite color and working with wire is another favorite
so putting the two together is easy
working with pinks is not my typical color palette
when I saw these mixed vials from at the john bead outlet
I knew I would love the end results

dreamy snowflake , soutache and fur necklace

this challenge was so much fun
i had so many ideas , it was hard to be limited to just one
fortunately the box of mixed beads was
 more than enough to create several projects
(see my northern lights wire necklace here)

i was so excited to work with fur for the first time
and the soutache cord was a wonderful way to feature these lovely beads
they come in a variety of color
see all the artists work here
