Heart challenge

There was so much to love about the artist demonstration at Pepper Street on Saturday. I loved the conversations about glass. And I loved that one visitor brought in some of my “old” work. Gosh, it was a real trip down memory lane for me!

In particular this customer loved my heart shaped beads. She asked me if I could make them with recycled glass, and I said I could, but they wouldn’t be as fancy as the one that she had brought with her (which I should have photographed)!

But then I thought…well, maybe we could make it “fancy” in other ways. So I have started making some heart-shaped beads, and over the next few days I’ll be making them into little pieces of jewellery to share with you.

This first necklace features a heart-shaped bead made from a wine bottle and decorated with fine silver wire. Sparkly and shiny!
