Thanks to Lorelei and Stacy for the encouragement (and subtle pressure), I have two necklaces to show using last week's heart charms. The Tory Burch necklace got me thinking about cord, but I decided that these charms should stand on their own, after all. Here's my first creation:

The second one uses candy-colored Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystal accents, and is as plain and as sweet as can be. Although it was snowing when I made it, it made me think of Spring.
Do you ever see something in a store and think, "I like it, but I'd rather see it in a different color or size..." Well, that's the story of my life. I'm always fiddling around with ideas and trying to make things just right for me.
