February 2007 Beaded Open Crystal Heart Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a crystal beaded open heart pendant or charm made with Japanese seed beads and Swarovski crystals using the Right Angle Weave technique (RAW). Great as a fashion accessory or as a jewelry gift.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Open Heart :

What you need:

1)    Glass seed beads size 11/0 (silver white)
2)    Swarovski Crystal bicones size 3mm or 4mm (64 pieces)
3)    Beading string (0.25mm)

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.

Step 1:
  • Cut a piece of beading string around 1 1/2 meter long.

    Add a silver seed bead at the middle of the string, remember to balance out both end of the string so that they are of the same length.

    Continue to add 2 crystals on each side of the string, crisscross the left (black) string through the last crystal added on the right string (blue) shown where both arrows are coming out from. Make sure you piece is at the center of the string.
Step 2:
  • Continue to:
    Add one crystal, one silver bead on the top (blue) string,
    add one silver seed bead and one crystal on the bottom (black) string.
    Cross the top blue string through the last crystal added on the bottom string, shown where both arrows are coming out from.
Step 3:
  • On top (black) string, add one silver bead, one crystal, one silver bead.
    On the bottom (blue) string, add one silver bead, one last crystal and crisscross the top string through this last crystal added.
Step 4:
  • On the top right (blue) string, add one silver bead, one crystal, one silver bead.
    On the bottom left (black) string, add one silver bead, one last crystal and crisscross the top string through this last added crystal.
Step 5:
  • On the right (black) string, add one silver bead, one crystal and one silver bead.
    On the left (blue) string, add two silver bead, one last crystal and crisscross the right string through this last added crystal.
Step 6:
  • On the right (blue) string, add one silver bead, one crystal.
    On the left (black) string, add one silver bead, one crystal, one last silver bead and crisscross the right string through this last bead added.
Step 7:
  • On the top (blue) string, add one crystal, one silver bead.
    On the bottom (black) string, add one crystal, one silver bead, one last crystal and crisscross the top string through this last added crystal.
Step 8:
  • On the bottom (blue) string, add one crystal, one silver bead, two crystals and crisscross the top string through the last added crystal.

Step 9:
  • Now that you get the basic idea, we will be going a little faster.

    Continue by:

    1. On top (blue) string add one silver bead, one crystal; on the   
        bottom (black) string add one silver bead, one crystal, one 
        last silver bead to crisscross the other end of string through.

    2. On the top right (black) string, add one crystal, one silver 
        bead; on the bottom left (blue) string, add one crystal, one 
        silver bead, one crystal to crisscross the other end of the  
        string through.

    3. On the left (black) string, add one silver bead, one crystal, one 
        silver bead; on the right (blue) string, add two silver bead and 
        one crystal to crisscross the other end of the string through.

    4. On the top left (blue) string, add one silver bead, one crystal, 
        one silver bead; on the bottom right (black) string, add one 
        silver bead and one crystal to crisscross the other end of the 
        string through.

    5. On the top (black) string, add one silver bead, one crystal, one 
        silver bead; on the bottom (blue) string, add one silver bead 
        and one crystal to crisscross the other end of the string 
        through.

    6. On the top (blue) string, add one silver bead, one crystal; On 
        the bottom (black) string, add one silver bead, crisscross this 
        end of the string through one crystal from step one (shown 
        where both arrow is coming out of, tie off.

Make one more heart by repeating from step 1 to 9.

Step 10:
  • Joining up the heart:

Cut a new piece of string around half a meter long, add one new silver bead at the middle of the string, pass the top string through the two silver bead from the top piece of the beaded heart, do the same for the bottom string but through the two silver beads from other beaded heart piece, add one new silver bead to crisscross both strings through.
Note: you should see a bead circle.

Pass the top string through the two crystal (the very top center of the heart), do the same for the bottom string but through the other two crystal from the other piece of beaded heart. Add one new silver bead to crisscross.

Keep doing the passing through and making seed bead circle all around the heart both on the inside and on the outside. Which means you have to cut one piece of string for joining up the inside of the heart and one piece for joining up the outside of the heart.

TIP: I would suggest you start with the inside first.
