Thanks for the tutorial -- great pictures :D

....and, it's nice that you didn't make it toooooo perfectly (bead release) :p
or you would have made the rest of us feel bad!

Thanks, bunches, Jinx! (I'll give this one a 5-star rating!)

Fantastic! You are such a generous soul, Jinx. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
5 stars!

FABULOUS tutorial and I just love the little Jinx caricature at the bottom of the tutorial page. Cute!

5 stars!

We;ll need to start a Puffy Heart Show'n'Tell thread. Unfortunately, I'll be late to the party since my torch won't be back in business until July - so somebody give me some Puffy Heart eye-candy to look at until then. :D

Jinx! You ROCK!!!

Thank you!!

Such user friendly instructions and perfectly representative pictures!

I may even be able to make one of those luscious hearts :clap: :D

I agree ~ 5 Stars!!!

Thank you, Jinx. Sounds easy enough that even I could attempt it. I'm going from my HH to my new Minor tomorrow, and I was only on the HH for less than two months, so I'll have a major amount of adjusting to do.

Thank you for sharing this technique. Now I can cross that off my long list of "How'd they do that?"

5 bright shiny stars for this one!

Thanks Jinx! Such a perfectly visual walk-through.

Thanks for sharing!

That was an awesome tutorial! Thank You!

Thanks Jinx! Actually, the "missing steps" help me see what I'm doing wrong with my hearts - and I really appreciate the step by step on adding the bail. Guess I can throw that toothpick away now!


06-03-2004, 05:42 PM
That was a GREAT tutorial! I've never been big on hearts, but that makes me want to run to the torch and try some!

06-04-2004, 12:17 PM
Why, thanks you guys. :D

I'd love to see your puffy hearts! Please let me know when you post 'em.

Thanks so much for this Jinx,
I was in a real rut & this is just what I needed. I made 3 hearts yesterday & I have plans for more! Thank you for sharing this great tutorial.

:clap: :clap: :clap:

My hearts weren't too successful, but I have a whole slew of other pendants I made, thanks to Jinx!

A most excellent tutorial - thank you so much, Jinx!! As soon as my torch is ready, I'll give that a try and see if I can progress from lumps with holes that go all the way thru to lumps with holes that only go halfway thru. :rolleyes:
