Black Hearted Beads
Are pretty darned sweet!

The pink birdies featured last time were part of our local guild's bead challenge. The rules were to make a dozen heart-themed beads, using red, pink, white and black, or any combination thereof of those four colors, in either transparents or opaques.

As the co-ordinator of the challenge, I added black into the traditional valentine mix to keep things from getting too syrupy sweet. That said I was honestly surprised by how many people took advantage—more than I had expected, certainly!
