Today we have the second video in a two part series, if you missed it here’s How to Make the Heart Toggle Pendants in Part 1.

This kind of a project is a fun challenge. I knew going in that I wanted to use a heart shape with a hole in it as a toggle. I also knew that I wanted to have some kind of dangles. My initial thought was to have the dangles coming down from holes near the tip of the heart.

It took a little bit of engineering and figuring to make it all come together, this is why I didn’t make any holes in the piece (except for the one for the toggle bar, of course!) until after I had it figured out. In the end I’m really pleased with both necklaces.

My favorite part are those chain dangles that flow down from the center of the toggle bars. 

Btw, don’t forget that if you are one of my patrons I have template of these heart shapes for you available on my Patreon posts page.
