3D Patriotic Flag Heart

I made these 3D hearts with a flag pattern with Swarovski bicone crystals for my favorite soldiers in the Army. Since this is the most recent 3D sparklies that I have made, I figured I would post them. :)

3D Flag Hearts
The larger heart on the viewer's left was made with 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones as a sample for a class I was teaching at Micheal's Arts and Crafts. Sadly, they decided to do away with most of the jewelry classes. The smaller heart on the right is made with 3mm bicone crystals. I added a hanger to it so it can be attached to a key chain or a cell phone. The smaller heart is about the size of a quarter. Both hearts have beads in the center to make them puffy and they are reversible. :)

It really is 3D and double sided :)
I think it would be really cute to make a bunch of these to sell to raise money for the soldiers and their families. If I had the time, I definitely would. :) And they would be cute on a chain and worn as a necklace. Hmm..I don't know how it would look as a would have to use only one half of it.

Solid Pink 3D Heart
Just wanted to show that this heart is still cute if you use a solid color. :)

  1. The heart on the left looks like a tiny purse; it's very cute. That is sad that Michael's got rid of alot of their jewelry classes. You should come to AL and teach at Hobby Lobby. I'd take your class :) Thanks for all the fun posts~!
