At the end of 2016, I shared the first part of the Broken Hearts story, and earlier this month, I shared the full story behind Dusty Rose Jumbo Broken Heart Necklaces and the Beaded Friendship Broken Heart Necklaces.
Now, I'm back again to share the full story behind and showcase more project pictures for the Dainty Broken Heart Locket, the smallest Broken Hearts project!
This project continued my journey towards creating the Broken Hearts design in an even smaller size.
It features the use of sewing thread in three colours - mint, pink and purple.
I paired it with my smallest, 0.75mm hook, which is the same one I used for the second necklace set because it is the only size smaller than my 1.05mm hook.
This project refined and perfected the heart half appliqués, the joining of them and the lacy border.
This time, I finally got to make a clasp variation. However, I didn't notice when I purchased the clasp that it only came with the clasps and no rings. So, I had to make do and create a chain loop.
I don't recommend using a chain loop as it was a challenge to fasten the clasp to it.
Since this one used the clasp for the necklace chain, I had to slip stitch back. And, as I crocheted the lacy border, I also joined both heart halves together.
This heart pendant is about 1.5” (4cm) at widest point and 7/8” (2cm) tall at the center or 1 3/8" (3.5cm) tall at full height.
Although, I turned this project into a locket, this sizing would also be great as a keyring fob!
Of the three necklaces, this is the one I can wear. It's dainty enough to compliment my small self.
Though, working with the sewing thread was quite the challenge. It is not something I really want to do again without some sort of magnifying goggles or glasses. It was tricky to see the stitches at night.
