Linked Hearts Cannot be Broken

Well, it seems as though my muse was with me over the weekend...I took a couple of days at a hotel, partly to regain my focus in the aftermath of the past 5 weeks, partly to meditate on what I need, what I want in and for my future, partly to draft, if you will, the ideas for my BJP. It was a successful weekend in all regards.

I have basic sketches of each of the twelve hearts I will be beading over the course of this project..each will begin with a hand formed copper wire heart frame...within each frame will be suspended a beaded heart, most likely bead embroidered...attached to the copper framework with red threads.

These twelve hearts will be connected, or linked, together at the end of the project for a neck which I pray will never be worn...a symbol of healing, a symbol of hope, a symbol of love conquering all.

I'll be posting images on my personal blog, , and will begin with sketches of each heart.

I've found that there is hope at the bottom of Pandora's box, and I embrace that hope.

Wow Anna, you are uber intense and organized. Me kiddo, I'm taking it on the fly. I admire your sincerity and look forward to your work. I'm off to check out your blog!

Ditto what 'Plays with Needles' said - SoooOOooo organized! I honestly can't wait to see how these turn out! Your writing is so poetic (if not a bit painful) and I can forsee your beaded heart journey becoming something amazingly beautiful.

Please let me know if you need anything! I'm only an e-mail away!

I was reading Linked Hearts Cannot Be Broken post and I would love to see your heart pages if you show them when you're done or working on them. But I can't figure out how to come back here later! LOL. I am not very "up" on the blogosphere!
Will they be on the Bead Journal Project?
