I just finished playing Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and when I saw red hearth-shaped lamp beads in a craft store I could not resist... I used two gold plated copper wire (thick and thin, don't ask me about gauges...), round-nose pliers and skin of my fingertips.

I am just learning to do filigree so it's full of nicks and scratches...

And look! Its double sided so twice the pain fun!

Pretty shimmer, ain't? Cheesy

I also bought some smaller hearths to make life chains. They miss locks but I'm posting them anyway. Wink From upper chain pessimist might say "Almost dead." and optimist "Still alive!". I thought it could be used when one has beaten a tough challenge like boss enemy or course exam. I'm specially proud of the one on below. I tried to make it look like life meter from Twilight Princess which has best graphical design IMHO... Sorry about the shadows, I had to use extra lightning to get the pictures.

Here is also nice detail of backside, prevents them from rolling around. Grin

That's so cool! You did an amazing job, especially on the large heart.

Beautiful! And I would say worth the pain hard work  Grin

I like the little hearts to prevent the rolling around, such a nice accent/detail.

Great job!!

I wish I had the patience to do something like that.  Cheesy

Thanks Grin I'm quite proud of that big Hearth Container. It took me two evenings, three nails ans lots of patience since my wire snapped three times in a row. I haven't decided weather I should wear it on that chain (in pictures above) or in a leather cord... What do you think?

I have one more big hearth for another, but my fingers are still a little bit sore...

I should wear your heart with the chain, they match so I think it looks good!

And when I was crocheting for hours and hours, my hands and fingers hurt so much! I can imagine yours hurt even more!! You'd better do something else for a few days and let your hand/fingers/nails rest a bit.... (Hahaha, that is what I didn't do... didn't improve the hurt or feeling, but hey I wanted to finish and learn how to crochet properly  Roll Eyes )

This is so amazing!!!  I've been thinking for years (ever since Twilight Princess) that the awesome, ornate heart containers from the latest zeldas would make the most awesome beautiful necklace and you've done it!  You've brought what I've been imagining to life!  I hit the "this ROCKS" button so hard!! 

ugh you are my hero of the day! Smiley
