In this issue:

  • New Article: Heart Bead Tassel Drops
  • Wire Wrap Hearts
  • In the Forum
  • Announcements
This is our official pre-Valentine's Day issue, so I've included a couple of articles featuring heart shaped components. Do you use hearts as a theme in any of your jewelry? If so, do you use them all year round or only in February? Share your thoughts by voting in the Hearts and Jewelry Poll in the forum!

Heart Bead Tassel Drops

In this new article, learn how to use a heart-shaped Hill Tribe silver bead and some sewing thread to create an eye-catching tassel drop.

Wire Wrap Hearts

Here's an article from several months ago with a method for making wire hearts. They have lots of design possibilities for Valentine's Day projects, so I thought I'd include a link in this week's newsletter.

The topic of handcrafted jewelry sales has been popular in the forum this past week:
