Boho Pendants

 I managed to finish my heart dingle dangles in time for the romantic day and they are hanging, happily from my fireplace now.

Most cheerful and bright they look and if, on the rare occasion, the sun does land on them, they shine beautifully.  I threaded them together with a mish mash of beads from my collection.  A motley selection of dismantled jewelry, leftover craft sets and a pot of wooden beads I actually purchased many moons ago.  Making these pendants was a very happy task indeed.  Threading beads with very little thought to selection and then a heart and back to beads.  Super easy and satisfying.  I can recommend it.



I also whipped up a pendant for my scissors too.  I like to have something on them to make them a little easier to find when they fall to the bottom of the yarn basket and to try and help them stop getting lost.

I used crochet thread for this little heart and added an extra round with some seed beads on the outside for an extra touch.  I think it came out quite nicely and it makes me happy to see it sitting beside me while I crochet.  I look forward to snipping so that I can pick it up and dangle the beads around.  It also provides a handy place to stow the needle when not in use to, I find.

Happy little projects!

  24. Those hearts are lovely - your heart on the sissors is a stroke of genius, I can't tell you how long I spend faffing around trying to find them in the bottom of my basket. I really need to make one, thank you so much for the pattern.

  25. Not sure which is cuter.....the hearts or their name....dingle dangle! The granny hearts are sweet as well. Thanks for sharing.
