    This may be a bit off the wall, but I’ve been playing around with knitting with beads lately. I think knitting these into a lace or cabled cowl could make for a very fun valentine’s day accessory.

    I think these will look really nice with some white freshwater pearls

    I can see a whole set of jewelry, a necklace with a seed beaded chain to hang the large heart from, a bracelet and a pair of earrings!

    Oh wow those are to cute to not want to really show them off!!! I would put them on a sterling silver chain and proudly sport them around my neck! Not to original but that’s exactly what I’d do! Brat58 on Ravelry

    A beautiful bracelet and matching earrings was the first thing I thought of!

    Those hearts are gorgeous! I see a pair of earrings and a necklace with crystals added.

    Well I am addicted to bracelets and would love to create a beaded bracelet with these. Not sure what other beads I would use, but something simple to not take away the beauty of these. BUT I really like Sheila’s idea about incorporating them into knitting.

    I’d make earrings and a necklace!
