I made several of these beautiful "Bermuda Blue" Swarovski hearts for under $3.00 each! A lot of people are surprised when I tell them that the price of Swarovski pendants are not out of reach. MANY bead sites have crystal beads and pendants for half price on and off during the year. I recently purchased several of these beautiful hearts for .91 cents each during a half price sale at JewelrySupply.com . Truthfully, I don't think you could find a lovelier gift to give for under $3! Think of the possibilities! Fund raisers, craft shows, Christmas gifts, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Birthday, Bridesmaid gifts and more! I shared the sites where I found my supplies, however, you can also easily look up your own resources for similar prices. Enjoy!

I purchased my Swarovski Heart from http://www.jewelrysupply.com during their half off sale on Swarovski Crystal. They have these sales quite often. I purchased many hearts for .91 cents each.
I purchased my beautiful sterling silver 2mm wave chain necklaces from the following Ebay seller from China: http://www.stores.ebay.com/sunny-jewelry86
I paid $7.99 for 10 chains and the shipping was free. It did take about 2.5 weeks to arrive.
I purchased my Tierracast pinch bail from a seller on Ebay. Here is the link: http://www.HackberryCreek.net With shipping, I paid $1.68 per bail because I only ordered 4 bails. Of course, the more you order, the lower the shipping, thus less for the bail.
The oval jump ring is OPTIONAL. However, I purchased mine from the following Etsy seller. This seller charges $4.00 for 100 rings. https://www.etsy.com/shop/PunchPlacePlus
