long hearts

call me trite, but i adore making heart beads.
each of these elongated heart focals measures about 2" in length.
yes, they were a bitch to get off their mandrels.
these little 5 bead sets are for necklaces, the hearts will be big dangling pendants.
i am not a big fan of the color blue - but i had a bunch of little blue bits that i wanted to use up. i love that in the center of the pendant there is an end of a hand pulled twisted cane tucked into the glass.

I too love making heart beads. I was told by a rather colorful individual that the way your heart beads looked, was how your boobs looked. I found it somewhat true. Maybe its like how artists always paint people that look like themselves.
