2008 hearts:
winged and not

This sub-index collects the 2008 (and beyond)[1] heart bead posts. Turns out a lot of people like ’em, so I've been making them. And I do think these side drill winged hearts are cool. They're one of the very few examples of beads where the real thing basically came out just like the concept.[2]

3 experimental winged heart beads. Czech vintage garnet and tourmaline pink glasses. April 08. The heart part of the bead measures roughly 15mm across.

The other notable thing about these beads is that I'm pretty sure I made them on the minor, while torching with somebody else—probably Cindi. Yes, I'm trying to get all my friends to torch with me, while the weather's nice. I've really enjoy working with other folks!

[1]Nah, I'ma make another index for that. Ha!

[2]2016 update: Unfortunately, the wings, even the ones that curved around the hole, tended to make the beads top-heavy, no matter how much I ‘drooped’ the heart bead; so I abandoned the concept before getting it work properly.
