Don’t Leave My Heart Dangling — “I love how long, dangling earrings swing and sway with head movement — they look breezy and airy. I’ve added colors, shapes, and symbols of love — red, diamonds, and hearts. Bead Inspirations taught me about wire wrapping and creating sections to add movement to a piece, so the earrings are two attached sections. Swarovski bicones give the impression of a diamond shape; the crystal bicones also add sparkle like an engagement ring; the earrings are anchored with a red cloisonne heart. Indeed, love is in the air and hopefully, it doesn’t go unrequited!

Heart Earrings

Key To My Heart — “This piece was inspired by my husband. On our first Valentine’s Day together, he gave me a bracelet and told me I had the key to his heart. I thought this piece was a beautiful representation of that moment. I hand-stamped the disc and used jump rings to put it all together.” Christina M. made the above bracelet using the following components: Sterling Silver Hammered Hook & Eye Clasp, Vintaj Brass Heart Double Sided Charm, Swarovski 14mm Heart – Light Rose, Sterling Silver Stamping Blank Circle – 31mm 24g, Scarlett’s Signature letter stamp set, Ranger Adirondack® Acrylic Dabber 1 oz Pitch Black. See our video and helpful stamping tips.

She Loves A Sailor — “My inspiration for this piece was my love for the art of knotting as done by old time sailors, a functional skill and pastime on long voyages.”
Gail M. made the above necklace using the following components: Cloisonne Heart – Red, Cloisonne Heart – Pink, Leather Cord – 1.5mm – Natural, Tierracast 8mm Copper Plated Twist Large Hole Spacer Bead, 8mm Copper Plated Legend Spacer, 10mm Copper Plated Legend Spacer.

    It was really hard for me to decide between You Hold the Key to My Heart and the Sailor/Knot necklace! But I loved them all! What fun!
