Love Heart Earrings
This is a limited edition kit. The design uses peyote stitch (straight and tubular), working with size 15 beads, so I would suggest that it is suited to intermediate beaders and upwards because of the fiddly nature of the beadwork element. As the Love heart beads are specialist, I am including a full supplier list here. All the supplies can be purchased from a combination of three websites in the UK – details are included below, so you may want to check these out before purchasing the pattern if you are ordering from outside the UK.
Your kit will include two Love heart beads. Two silver 10mm triangle bails – silver plated. Two 6mm round silver stardust beads. Size 15 Matsuno seed beads in silver lined crystal. Four silver split rings (6mm). Earring findings in sterling silver. Beading thread.
If you have already spent time browsing this website then you will know that I have something of an obsession with food…well, I don’t really, but it looks that way from the beading patterns I have created! This pattern follows that theme, but the difference is the food element is actually a purchased bead. If you live in the UK or are familiar with out sweets, you will recognise the Love Heart sweets immediately. These are pure sugar, but great fun as each sweet has a different message written on it, so they are great for sharing. Something about the ‘cuteness’ factor of the love heart sweets made me want to combine them with dainty little beaded bows. If you don’t want the full kit, then you can find this as a pattern here. I hope you will enjoy it.
