February Love

February, the month of Valentines or ‘V-Day’ but also, the month when the first hints that winter might be coming to an end appear. I did a quick review of my Bead related Love and rounded up my heartfelt offerings, for anyone in need of a beaded heart this month.

In the pdf store my Tattoo Heart, inspired by wild child ink, I have one as a bag charm.

For a softer design, perfect as a pendant without wearing your heart on your sleeve, Beloved is pretty and feminine and can be worked in as many colours as you need. For colour inspiration ideas from Beloved fans, have a look at this post. Beloved is also available as a kit in my favourite English country garden shades here.Beloved Colourways




My most recent design with a heart theme is Divine, I love it because it has so many variations. Inspired by the Californian sunshine and friendship, which you can read about here. Divine is available as a kit here. It can worn as a simple crystal encrusted pendant, or adorned with one of two styles of wings for more drama.

However you choose to celebrate Love this month, take pleasure in the small things. Bead love is the best! These love letters are by my friend Marcia DeCoster and can be found on her bead love blog where bead artists from around the world shared their love of beads. The flower is available as a pdf here.
