O ne Christmas, my husband gave me a shoebox with 180 little boxes of seed beads. You would have thought he had given me the Hope Diamond. He told me he had chosen them from a close-out bin. It was amus- ing to picture him sorting through beads, but I knew it was a real testimony of love. So I only giggled a little bit. Though I am always looking for new inspiration, I think Russian beadwork is my favorite source. Looking through my books on this topic inspired me to cre- ate my sweetheart necklace design. step by step To achieve the heart shape, you must keep the thread tension taut so the skipped beads pop out. Thread a needle with 4 yd. (3.6m) of thread. String a bead 3 in. (8cm) from the tail end. Tie the tail and working thread in a surgeon’s knot (see “Basics”) over the bead. Glue the knot and string a bead tip over the bead (photo) . Trim the thread tail close to the bead. Chain Stitch these sweet links into a necklace or bracelet by Josette Maguire

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
