The lot of vintage cinnamon red puffy hearts would work, but they are plastic, and I prefer glass, so I am going to search further. You can find vintage heart charms for any price on Ebay.

An example is in the picture to the right where a vintage skeleton key has been combined with two vintage heart charms, one of the heart charms is a brass locket.
Eclectic necklace designs are very much in style right now, and look great with vintage hearts in brass, silver, and copper, as well as other vintage charms. These charms are often connected with either copper or brass chains that have a antiqued patina or are authentically vintage.

Add Color With Enameled Heart Charms
Because the heart motif is popular, and has been popular throughout time, both antique and vintage heart charms are available in a variety of sizes and styles including enameled hearts on metal.
Enameling is a technique of melting glass powder and fusing it onto metal. Traditionally enamel is fused onto copper, but it can be fused onto silver and gold as well. Designs can be made with the enamel itself or in hollowed out spaces created in the metal. Sometimes the enamel colors are separated only by a thin wire. This enamel technique is called cloisonne.
Vintage enameled heart charms can add color and whimsy to any jewelry design.
