I found this great tutorial for a beaded heart necklace over at Tatertots and Jello. I thought it was very cute and made one for my sister for her birthday!
I made two hearts each in our birthstones. Green for me (birthstone is peridot) and Purple for her (birthstone is amethyst).
I think they turned out pretty cute. Make sure to head on over to Tatertots and Jello to check out the tutorial!
