Hey, Jinx! Great to see ya here!

Well, being partial to black & white, I just love the heart. And the way the black drapes across the front is so elegant. Super job!

Wow. I love the strong graphical look of this. The draping of that black is just beautiful. Is it just the picture or is the black sort of a matte texture? I also can't tell if it's vertical or horizontal holed.

Your bead is very exotic and sensual, the red dot sets it off for me!

Hey, thanks everyone! Sensual, exotic, elegant... what a classy bunch!

LeAnn, yes, the heart is etched except for the red dot. And the hole is vertical but only goes to the middle, er, heart of the bead.

Hey, Jinx - love the heart, as always! I think you may have told this before, but how do you "string" (or wire wrap) the heart? Epoxy? B2

Oh, and Beth, I just got that! (Duh! Eye, heart...:D )

:p B2!

Darn, missed out on it though!

Awesome, awesome heart bead Jinx. Thanks for sharing.:clap:

Jinx.....that is the most stunning of the classy hearts. I love how the black is not "smoothed" up to the white. WOW ! ! !

Wow! Thanks everyone.

Yep, I make an eyepin with a twisted bottom, dip it in epoxy then pop it into the hole. I prefer hearts with pointy bottoms. Most of my hearts are intended to be worn as pendants or charms. It was my customers who convinced me to sell the hearts without the eyepins so they could use their own components. I imagine some do wire wrapping.

Funny thing with this heart. I had it up for auction, and the winner didn't read the description until after she'd won it. She paid for it then wrote saying she couldn't use it unless I could drill all the way through so she could string it. Uh, no I can't. So after all your kind words and support it was going to someone who said she didn't want it!! :( Fortunately the second highest bidder wanted it so all's well that ends well.

I've had several cases recently where people just weren't reading the description. I'm reformatting my template to make it easier to read...I hope!

I was so sad when I missed the auction, & then happy when I saw it again, until I found out it was a "personal offer"...darn! As far as not reading descriptions, I'm guilty of that a lot of the time. I don't think it's your template...just the way a lot of people are!

Wow Jinx,
What can I say - that is one of the best hearts I have ever seen, and I can't think of anything else to say - other than - if you want to give it a home - look my way!
