#12 - "Heart Blossom"

Heart #12 is called "Heart Blossom"
The center starts with the center ring and climb out with a mock picot to make the outside rings.  I messed up the join again.
The next round is a diamond of daisy's all connected by split rings.  I am getting plenty of practice with split rings on these patterns.  This is the most advanced pattern in the book.
The left top consisted of split rings joined between two daisy at the top.
Repeated the process on the right side.
Another round of split rings at the bottom and daisy's at the top.  The center point was a half daisy where I had to use 3 shuttles.  This picture shows how I messed up.  Had to cut it off and try again.
Repeat the process on the right side.
Here is the picture of all 12 hearts.

#11 "Heartbreaker"

#11 is called "Heartbreaker"
The center looks so pretty all by itself.
The next round I am adding butterflies to the points.  The ring from the previous round is the head for each butterfly.
Butterfly round completed.
On this round I added an overlapping chain with rings connecting the butterfly wings.
Added a butterfly chain on the left side for the top of the heart.
Another Butterfly chain on the right side makes the other top.
Then a split ring chain frames the whole heart.

#10 "Heart Frame"

Heart #10 is called "Heart Frame"

Using 2 shuttles you make alternating rings with a small chain in between each set of rings. The top point was a trefoil.

I made a mistake on the last half and had to cut it off and then forgot to hide the end in one of the rings.

#9 - "Gypsy Heart"

This is the 9th Heart called "Gypsy Heart"
I messed up the join on the last ring.  
Alternating large and small split rings for the next row.
Added a butterfly to the bottom.
Split ring chains with split ring butterfly's.  I really like this one.
Last row is another split ring chain.

The finished heart.  Really pretty.

#8 - Cupid's Heart"

#8 Cupid's Heart
Made with Butterfly's at the top and bottom of a split ring circle.

The arrow is made starting and the feathered end and using split rings for the shaft and finishing with a clover ring for the point.
