May The Heart Be With You

Well, this week over at Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog, the challenge is "A Project With a Heart". I love this one because I just love hearts. Of course SSS is giving away thier usual 50.00 shopping card to one random winner, they are so great over there!!! 
I am currently in process of making jewelry for gifts for family so I decided to take a little break and make something for this challenge and wanted to do a jewelry piece. 

For this particular piece I used some really cool heart beads that I found at a thrift store. They were attached to a necklace and weren't that great looking with the beads that were with it. I love buying old jewelry and taking it apart and making something new out of it so I decided to do that with these little purple hearts. I added a glass bubble heart to the middle part of the necklace that was actually clear glass and I dyed it with Tim Holtz alcohol inks on both sides and strung some beads with it. I love the way it turned out. I also wanted to make some earrings to go with this as well. Hope you like :) My daughter modeled it for me :)
