Hearts Carolyn Weatherford

I found a variation of this technique in a magazine published in Aug '66 called Women's Household.

 It was sent in by Mrs. Flora Siepel. Plymouth, IL

 I used mini bugle beads sometimes called size 1, or some might call them mini-tubes.

 Size 11 seed beads (small amount of like color).

 Two lapis hearts and one black onyx heart for the fringe beads.

 I think any size of seed bead could be used. I can see the possiblility of changing the color combinations in many ways. I use an anchor bead. 

1. String 5 beads on thread.

 2. Put your needle into the fourth bead from the needle going in the opposite directions.

 3. String 3 beads and put the needle back into the third bead from the needle in the opposite direction.

 4. String 3 beads and put the needle into the second bead from the bead you came out of in the previous row.

 5. String 3 beads and put the needle back into the third bead from the needle in the opposite direction. (Same as row 3)

 6. String 3 beads and put the needle into the middle bead of row 4.

 Continue using rows 5-6 until you have the choker as long as you want it and then add a closure.
