Susan Ray, author of Beaded Jewelry: The Complete Guide, Organic Beaded Jewelry, Art and Soul of Glass Beads, Wire Jewelry Workshop and best seller: Easy Beaded Jewelry (with Sue Wilke) offers her latest design.
A Healing Heart is a pendant necklace with multi-colored Czech glass beads that cascade the sides of the Tanga pendant inside a steel frame with back plate. These are then attached to a coordinating soul smudge which has added length of cascading waxed cording and more beads. This is a very long piece suited for a show stopping dress or sweater!
The embellishments include Lampwork beads in a dark matte two tone, a piece of sponge coral and a Tibetan DZI oval. The annealed steel frame captures a slice of the Tanga seed. The smudge includes a ceramic tube, felt and velvet wraps, beads, bells, waxed cording and 3 cascading feathers.
Overall pendant dimensions: 2" W x 10" L (including Waxed cord strands).
Necklace cord: 32" to tie (16" per side). Cut it with scissors to your desired length.
This necklace is moderate weight.

"My love of beads began 17 years ago. I am fascinated by the human story they tell, the nature of the beads, the hands that created and traded them.
This has led me from my early discovery of the vast history available and the opportunity to learn the skills required to create beautiful jewelry myself. I later opened the first bead store in Galena, Illinois and taught more than 20,000 women (and a few men) to bead.
As my knowledge grew I wanted to share it further and wrote five books about beading for the craft industry. Along the way I have made many dear friends and have been fortunate to be inspired by many leading designers. You can visit me here at OneHealingStone on Etsy or on Facebook at my jewelry designers group: Crafting Jewelry Inspiration." - Susan Ray
