Fun, flirty, and very satisfying to make! Gather the supplies and it will take about 15-20 minutes to construct. Wear it for Valentine’s Day, give it as a gift, treat a friend or a family member. It feels so good to be generous or have something to wear out to a special occasion.

As an aside, if the hearts don’t work for you there are several more designs available, as well as the crystalized bezels too, maybe choose birthstone colors. Look in the TierraCast Charms folder.
