I've been sorting through my bead stash for a few reasons. First, it never hurts to take a look at what you've got, because depending on your mood, you'll see things in a different way. Second, the Bead & Button show is only a few months away, and I realize I haven't used much of what I bought last year yet! Third, it's easy to forget about things, like these charms, when they're tucked away safely. I'm a firm believer in letting your mind wander with an idea for a while until inspiration strikes -- but that's hard to do when you can't remember what you've got to work with. I clearly have a "thing" for heart charms. The hollow heart could be a bead frame. It's from Hip Chick Beads. The hands are from Art Girlz. The rest of the charms are from Wynwoods Gallery & Bead Studio.
What will I do with them? Each of these is cute enough to be on its own on a simple cord or tiny beaded strand. There's always the charm bracelet option. Hmmm... as I write this I'm reminded of a necklace I saw in Oprah by Tory Burch. Maybe these charms should stay together, after all.
