Project and Sample by Emily Miller

Emily wears her heart on her sleeve! She loves seed beads and wants you to love them, too. So here is a tempting project to inspire: a beautiful blue textured heart for you or your sweetie. Using brick stitch and a mix of gleaming colors, make a heart that is perfect for a pendant, a pin, a bookmark…or will you use it for something else? Brick stitch lends itself naturally to this particular shape, and we’ll use the 'two-drop' technique to speed up the process.
