One of the designs I created for the February newsletter were these simple earrings. Hearts are always appropriate and never more so than for Valentines day. I don't play with beads a lot and I've never designed something the used beads on the core thread. So I sat down one day and whipped up this little design. I really like the way that the beads on the core thread forced a nice even outline. As heart designs go, this is about as simple as you can get so it isn't surprising that there are several on the internet that are very similar.
