The fourth heart in the series

It’s funny how one idea can spark more ideas. I started the heart challenge thinking I would just try making a heart bead like this one.

But as soon as I made that bead, I thought, well, what if I ran the holes vertically, rather than horizontally? That sparked this bead.

Then I thought, maybe I could add some colour by melting some frit into the bead. That idea made this bead.

It took a little while, but I did get back on the torch to make this bead, featuring frit, and a horizontal hole, it looks so sweet!
