Happy Valentine's Day! My friend Barb (from Portland) has been visiting for the last couple of weeks and we have been playing around with beaded heart patterns. I gotta say - we have figured out an easy way to make some of these. Here are some photos. I will post free instructions on how to make these. And if you start with some of the easier ones - and work up to the harder ones, you can even bead the Puffy Crystal heart without any difficulty. Trust me - we did this (and even one with 3mm crystals). Check back tomorrow for the first tutorial.
