I was inspired by the colors within the heart charm at the center of this necklace.
Gardanne Beads components make wonderful starts for any design. Cynthia was inspired by the misty and stony green colors and subtle red hints of the heart charm at the center of this necklace. The colors found in the heart inspired the rest of the colors on display Get inspired by other Gardanne Beads components in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 20 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto the end, followed by half of the TierraCast antique silver tapered Bali clasp set. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.
Add the following bead pattern to the strand:
Three Czech glass 3x5mm blue and green with copper finish faceted round beads
Three Swarovski 5mm round pearls in Crystal Iridescent Red
Three Czech glass beads
One Dakota Stones 4mm copper-plated hematite faceted roundel bead
One Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in Smoky Mauve
One 4mm hematite bead
Repeat this pattern three times, followed by three Czech glass beads and three Iridescent Red pearls.
Attach the TierraCast antique silver-plated pewter royal pinch bail to the Gardanne Beads peppermint green enameled brass etched heart charm. Slide the charm onto the wire. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the heart charm.
Slide a crimp tube onto the strand, followed by the other half of the clasp. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
