Le Coeur

Coeur is French for heart.  I found these tiny heart shaped vessels and knew I had to have them.  I half-filled this one with glitter and glued the cork into place.  The two pendants along the side are images attached to the backs of glass bubbles, then soldered.
Solder inadvertently filled the jump ring as I was attaching it, so I had to add another behind it. 
 This is the back of the necklace.  The woven beads lie comfortably flat against the back of the neck. I like adding my beading in liu of using chain.

  1. So darn cute! The solder filling the jump ring looks like one of those happy accidents- kinda a design element? I think the heart bottle with the glitter is so sweet and the amour charm is darling. What an eye you have for jewelry making. I just can't hardly wait to see what's next!
