Valentine & Heart Jewelry

by mary February 3, 2015

With Valentine's Day approaching, I thought I would gather together some of the jewelry I've made that features hearts -- turns out I had more than I thought I did, although several pieces have sold . . .

I made this first charm bracelet just recently, with Valentine's Day in mind.  The gemstones, rose agate & red coral, are both said to be symbols of love.  I added a little cupid charm as well.

I made this next charm "Key to My Heart" bracelet earlier this year using little heart & key charms that I picked up at various garage sales & flea markets, plus 3 freshwater pearls.

I also made a "Key to My Heart" necklace -- this one also includes little crystal beads as well as pearls, & heart & key charms.  The pendant is a vintage locket -- inside I added excerpts from "Love Me To-Night" from musci sheets of Bing Crosby's favorite songs.

This next necklace is made with a vintage silver filigree heart & red beads & rosary chain.  The dangle at the back is a red crystal heart shaped bead.

This last necklace has a reversable pendant -- on one side is a fairy, the other side I've filled with resin & watch parts.  I think the pendant may have originally been 1/2 of a locket!

Here's the other side of the pendant . . .

For most of these, I wasn't necessarily thinking about Valentine's Day when I made them -- I guess I just like hears & the color red!

As always, thanks for reading & for supporting small businesses . . . to see more of my jewelry, go to
