The TierraCast heart lock and key toggle was the inspiration for this piece. To go with the vintage, romantic vibe, I decided to pair it with cherry and chocolate colored glass pearls. So fun and flirty!

  1. Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 10 inches. String a crimp bead toward one end. Run your wire through the loop on the bar portion of the toggle then back through the crimp bead. Crimp. Apply crimp cover if using.
  2. String an 8mm chocolate glass pearl and a bead cap. Make sure the bead cap is cupping the 8mm pearl.
  3. String a 12mm red glass pearl, a bead cap, an 8mm chocolate glass pearl and a bead cap. Make sure your bead caps are cupping the 8mm glass pearl.
  4. Repeat step 3 six more times. You should have a total of 7 red beads at this point.
  5. String a 12mm red glass pearl, a bead cap, an 8mm chocolate glass pearl and a crimp bead. Run your beading wire through the loop on the heart portion of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead, chocolate bead and bead cap. Crimp. Cut excess wire. Apply crimp cover if using.

This bracelet was a cinch to work up, & looks so nice! It's a color combination I would not have thought up. And I like the concept! A new favorite!
