Pendant in the shape of a heart with microbeads

Here is a tutorial on how to make a simple decoration on any base using microbeads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Glass™ for all those who love making things by hand. Choose your favourite colors from the wide range of microbead shades and create a simple pendant in the shape of a heart.

Materials and Tools


The base material - a wooden heart; glue; white acrylic or tempera paint; a brush; a colorless lacquer in a spray


A fine chain, 50 cm long; a chain with larger links, 45 mm long; a carabiner; rings; pliers


Step 1

Paint the selected shape white using the paintbrush (it will accentuate the color of the microbeads) and then apply a thin layer of glue to the gluing side once the paint has dried.

Step 2

After it dries, the glue will form a self-adhesive layer, onto which you can place the microbeads (we recommend starting with the 1.0 – 1.3 mm size) according to your fancy.
