I finished this late yesterday, but I was too tired to post my photos. This took much longer to finish than I anticipated, but it's done! The hard part was whipstitching the linen pieces together at the top in that middle gap. I had to take out stitches and remove the beads, so there is a little section with no beads, but I don't think it really is very noticeable.

Stitched on 32 count Lambswool using DMC #4210 Variegated Floss
Antique Glass Beads (#03021) attached to the outside edge
Here's a view of the back of the heart.
And I took a few photos of my finishing. It's just your basic backstitching and then whipstitching the two linen pieces together (hopefully I'm using the correct terminology?).
I added a bead at every other stitch. Each stitch would have been too close together, I think.
The beading wasn't as hard as I expected (except at the top). It just took a while as it's quite a ways around the heart.
And here's a close up of the beads. I filled it with little plastic pellets used in crafts to give it a little weight. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!
