String of Hearts Winner
Debi Larson, owner of Baskets & Beads located in Park View, Iowa was the only entry in the String of Hearts contest.
Her innovative use of the design would have been hard to beat, though!
She worked the hearts on wire using the Victorian method for making beaded flowers; then turned them into butterfly wings. Two of her butterflies are attached to the heart pin & the third butterfly may be pinned to flutter nearby.
I asked Debi to tell us a little bit about herself & for permission to share some of her gorgeous creations. You may also visit her website. (link below & on my links page)
