|Deep Purple and Silver Filigree Hearts|
|Lovely magenta rondelles and shiny deep purple beads|
I knew I wanted to play with the shiny purple or pink beads for this Christmas ornament execution with the filigree hearts. Purple became the winner when I remembered these lovely deep magenta rondelles that I had to go with them. The filigree heart is a substantial piece so it can handle some lovely large beads without being overwhelmed.

I make these ornaments so that they won't come off their hangers, and the hole on the heart was a little too big for seed beads to hold it securely, so I have used tiny little purple pearls. I must say, it's wonderful having such well stocked bead cabinets.
As my mind was completely focused on matching beads while making them, I didn't think about the connotation of their name until I was finished. Hmmm, maybe we'll go with magenta hearts.
