This was a fun project using 16 count tubular peyote stitch. I have never gone this wide using size 11 seed beads and decided to reinforce the interior with clear plastic tubing. This helps to keep its shape and avoid crinkling where the necklace naturally bends.
The necklace aquired its name from the little "heart in hand" charm attached at the clasp. I almost called it "hugs" for the XOX sewn into the pattern. Can you see it?
