Other material

a metal frame in the shape of a heart with a raised edge (for example, a pendant, a ring or earrings); rings; a carabiner; a counter-ring; a chain

Tools

glue for non-absorbent materials, slow drying, preferably transparent; a pointed skewer (for applying the glue); a large tailor's needle (used to place the seed beads); a thin red ribbo

Procedure

Step 1

Apply the glue to the frame in a thick layer. Clean the top of the raised edge.

Step 2

Slowly and carefully arrange the R7 in the frame, piece by piece. Start along the raised edge (fig. no 2). Then fill in the centre of the heart. Use the large tailor's needle to assist with this. You can insert the point of the needle into the hole of the R7 and use it to move the bead.

Step 3

Once the frame has been filled with R7, small gaps will remain between them (fig. no. 3a). Place the R11 into them - you can also use a smaller size.

Step 5

The ring and the earrings are finished (fig. no. 5a). Hang the pendant on a carabiner using the rings (fig. nos. 5b, 5c). Now you can use it as a key ring (fig. no 5d) or to decorate a gift. You can additionally decorate it with a ribbon. Cut off about 30 cm of ribbon. Thread it through the rings next to the carabiner. Fold it in half (fig. no. 5e). Tie a knot under the ring (fig. no. 5f). Thread 2x R31 onto each free end of the ribbon. Tie a knot at the ends and cut off the ribbon (fig. no. 5g). Otherwise, you can hang the pendant on a chain using a ring. Also connect a carabiner and a counter-ring on the end of the chain using the rings.
