A bead for me!

Lampwork Glass Heart NecklaceRemember that 'Big Red Heart' I made not so long ago?

Well, I said then that I thought I'd have to make one for me and here it is. This one is bigger than the other heart and I've decorated it with lots of white spots. I've wired it very simply and it hangs from a long silver chain. The bead took me over an hour to make as melting in all those spots so that they kept their roundness was a slow task.

I'm mega-pleased with the end result, though. At last - a bead for me!
