To make a beaded heart pendant, you will need the following:
Start by drawing your heart shape. After doing that, just try to follow the lines you drew to create the heart. It doesn't have to be exactly the same, as long as it is recognizable as a heart.
To stop the two swirly parts of the hearts from moving, take a piece of wire and coil it around the joining point.
Start by coiling a piece of coloured wire around the outside of the heart. Add your beads and move the wire until it is positioned somewhere you like it. To end this part, coil the end of the wire around the part of the wire heart where the beads end and cut it off.
The second and the third row of beads were added the same way as the first row. For the fourth row, add some extra beads and make the wire go back to the outside of the heart, instead of straight to the inside. The last part was also done differently: Coil a bit of the wire around the outside of the heart and add a bead. Immediately after that bead, coil the wire two times around the outside of the heart. Repeat this for a total of about four beads, or until your heart is filled.
Before being able to wear this pendant, you should add some jump rings. I always use two, I just don't trust one jump ring enough I guess :)
To make the necklace, I added the closure and used a small lace crimp to close the lace.
And then you are done!
I hope you liked this project and found it useful, if you did I would love to know!
