February 2010 Beaded 3D Crystal Rhinestone Heart Project.

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beading tutorials and other project. This month's project is a beaded 3D crystal rhinestone heart, made with 4 hole crystal rhinestone beads of different sizes using right angle weave Beading technique.

Rhinestone Heart Tutorial
Step 1: Cut a piece string around ten inches long.
  • Add three size 2mm rhinestone beads on the exact center of the string, add one last 3mm rhinestone bead to crisscross both strings through. (The diagram shows the back of the rhinestone beads).
    Make sure this 4 rhinestones bead ring is centralized at the center of the string.
Step 2:
  • Continue to:

    Add one 2mm rhinestone bead on each side of the string (total of two), add one last 3mm rhinestone bead to crisscross both strings through.
Step 3:
  • Continue to:

    Add two 2mm and one 3mm rhinestone beads on the bottom (black) string, crisscross the top (red) string through the last 3mm rhinestone bead added.
Step 4:
  • Continue to:

    Add one 2mm rhinestone bead on each side of the string (total of two), add one last 3mm rhinestone bead to crisscross both strings through.
Step 5:
  • Continue to:

    Add one 2mm rhinestone bead on each side of the string (total of two), add one last 2mm rhinestone bead to crisscross both strings through.
  • Now leave this piece aside (do not tie off or cut away excess strings yet).
  • Make another piece exactly the same from step 1 to step 5.

Step 6:
  • Joining the two hearts:

    Using the remainder of the string left on one of the heart. Add one silver beads on the top (black) string.
    Continue to pass the black string (the one you just used to add new beads on) through one old rhinestone bead from the opposite end of the other piece of heart..

Step 7:
  • Continue to:

    Add one white beads to crisscross both strings through.
    Continue each side of the string through one old rhinestone bead from each side of the hearts. (remember to let the crystal side face out)

Step 8:
  • Continue to:

    Repeat step 7 two more times. (shown by the first two beads added in the above diagram).
  • Continue to:

    Add one 2mm rhinestone beads on each side of the string, continue to pass each side of the string through an old rhinestone beads from each side of the heart.
  • Continue to:

    Repeat step 7 again until you reached the first seed beads you added on step 6.
  • Tie off and add a pendant claw hook if you want to wear it as a pendant or make two and add earring hooks to wear them as earrings, I still added the pendant hook although I used it as a phone charm.
