March 2010 Beaded 3D Key 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 key heart, made with Japanese glass seed beads, using right angle weave Beading technique. Great as a Valentine's day project or gift!

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

Beaded Key Heart :

What you need:

1)   Glass seed beads, I use size 11/0 but you can use any constant sizes. 
      (silver white and beige)
2)   Beading string (0.25 mm)

    Add one beige on each side of the string (total of 2) add one more silver bead to crisscross both lines through.
  • Repeat this step exactly one more time!
Step 14: After repeating the above step one more time, work this step with only one side of the string.
  • Continue to:
    Add one silver and three beige beads on the left (red) string, remember to pass this same string down through the first silver bead added in this step.
Step 15:

Step 18:
  • Continue to:

    Add three beige beads on the left (black) string, tie a dead knot together with the other red string and pass the excess back through the piece for a more secure knot.
  • Now repeat step 1 to step 18 and make one more exact piece of heart key.
Step 19:
  • Joining the two pieces to form a 3D Heart key!

    Cut a piece of string around half a meter long.
    Add one beige bead at the exact middle of this string (shown marked with the red dot).
    Pass each end of the string through one bead from each side of the heart key as shown.
  • Now you can keep adding one beige bead in each gap to crisscross the strings and pass each side of the string up through the next old bead on each piece of the heart key.
    Keep doing this adding of beads, crisscrossing and passing through until you go one round around the rim of the heart keys and come back up to the first beige bead you added (marked with the red dot) when you reach this first beige bead, crisscross both strings through it again and tie off.
  • You can now add a jump ring or hook to hang as pendant, earring or charm.
