ok, weird coincidence I totally made this the other day and just read this now... weird, i made it basically the same way except with two rods cuz I fail at cutting glass, last time I tried I ended up with a nice scorch mark on my workbench. This is soft glass. BE light violet with white dots, the side that looks black just has a little opaque purple frit, and yeah, it's a craptastic picture cuz i took it on the kitchen counter at 11:30...

HeatSeekingMsl, very cool! I tend to think that people are attracted to certain shapes, color combinations, patterns etc. so yes it is a weird coincidence but I know it happens probably more than we realize.

Mine are made of soft glass as well. If you have any questions about cutting glass or anything else about the heart outline pendant just ask and I will try my best to answer. I should probably put a couple of updated photos in here to show different things that can be done with it.

Have fun melting glass and staying creative. Thanks for posting your coincidence in here, I think things like that are just great!

Thank you so much for posting this!

Does it work for Moretti as well as Boro?

Llama Girl,
The one in this tutorial is 104 COE, I have also used it for boro. I think they both have their advantages and disadvantages. I have had a few people email me pics of the hearts they have made through this technique and other people have used both soft glass and boro also. So the answer is yes, absolutely in works in boro and soft glass. Give it a try!

It looks like Otter is selling these to QVC now:

All kidding aside I like the way the loop is attached to the juncture of the top of the heart in the back
