I managed to get in some extra beading time this week but in that time I only made things that needed to be torn apart.

I did manage to finish the heart for my Blue Heart necklace.

Here is another view with the beaded beads:

 I am not sure if I am satisfied with the way the heart turned out.  The lobes are not pronounced enough.  I will look at it again after having been away for a day or two and perhaps it will be just right.

The heart is made in two pieces and zipped together.  I made the first half easy-peasy. Now that should have been a clue.  Then I proceeded to make 4 or 5 second halfs none of which quite matched. Now that was surely a second clue.  However, I liked the way the initial half looked.  I decided to zip the halves together only to find that the darn thing was lop-sided.  I think the initial half was bad and I kept trying to match a mistake. 

I moved on to a larger version, which only took one try per side.  As I said this might need to be redone.

I did save the out of kilter heart and will hang it from the clasp end.  Here is a picture of both hearts:

  1. Well, I tend to like out of kilter hearts! Very cute! Is this your pattern?

    1. Thank you Shirley.

      This is not my pattern, it was purchased from Kreative Keller.

  2. Hearts come in all shapes and sizes. :) I too think that a heart that is slightly out of kilter has a charm of its own and is cute and whimsical.

    1. You are not alone in the out of kilter heart having its own charms... if you read ahead you will see that I used the lopsided heart as a charm at the back of the necklace, where it will be loved and mostly unnoticed.
