Product Description

“Heart on a String” Necklace Downloadable PDF Beading Tutorial #24321

There’s a lot to love about this unique and dazzling design!  First, this substantial 3-dimensional (puff) crystal heart measures over 1¼” wide, 1” tall and over ½” deep, making it a lovely, eye-catching statement piece.  Second, this design is made using a single needle technique (vs. the more common double thread or double needle techniques used for puff hearts) so it’s super easy to handle and deal with while you work.  And, you can use either Monofilament (Illusion Cord/fishing line) or beading thread (i.e. FireLine), which ever you prefer.  Third, I show you how to finish it off THREE different ways so you can hang your heart from your choice of a chain, satin cord or ribbon!  Finally, this tutorial (which includes; over 95 high resolution full color photos, step-by-step detail instructions and a full color bead diagram to help illustrate every step) will have you done with your necklace in a heartbeat!  What’s not to love!  If you prefer to hang your heart from through the middle, please see my “Heart On The Line” tutorial which is essentially the same design except I show you how to thread beading wire through the heart for a unique and flattering look.  Either way you hang, you’ll be glad you put your beautiful heart out there for all to see and enjoy.  Bead happy!
