Split Ring Alternative

Split ring alternative to One shuttle chevron Heart Lizbeth 40 Azalea Md.

{{Note to self::  Must get better name!!lolz }}

Here's my little heart again but I used split rings.  I should have closed up that gap on the one peak, but other than that I like it. 

Also, all the rings the non split rings (with exception of the small ones) are 6-6-6-6
most the split rings are 6-6-6/ 6

But the one in the middle, at the very center of the heart is 6-5-5/6, it helps the other rings sit better I think. 

Does it look any cleaner?


  1. personally my opinion is, the first heart looks better, also the picots on top are kinda throwing me off, have you tried it without them?

  2. I did on accident lol because I made a bad join and then cut them off. It looks good that way.

    I actually meant to try it that way on this one but I remembered too late that I couldn't start a heart that was going to have split rings the same way that the one shuttle one started. And then I just mirrored it on the other side.

    Though, when I first thought to make the heart, I was wanting to make a pendant or earrings and I was thinking about making them "dangle-y" with maybe a string a bead coming up from each peak.

    And I like the one shuttle one better as well. I like the idea of having a small pattern using one shuttle.

    Wow, that seems like a lot for what should have been a straight forward answer, doesn't it lol

  3. wow. yeah that happens to me too. who knows,people always modify patterns for personal needs and styles. i just think that is so clever, pivots or no...:))

  4. That's an adorable little heart! I don't know if it's cleaner than the other or not, but I do like it!

  5. I think the first one is not straight at the bottom, and it looks broader. I prefer the variegated one, but there is very little difference really.
