Valentines day is fast approaching, so why not make your own wire wrapped heart set…
You will need: 0.8mm silver plated wire, 0.6mm silver plated wire, tigertail, a selection of red and pink beads, crimps x 2, clasp and closed jumpring, round nosed pliers, chain nosed pliers, side cutters and a wooden mandrel or tube.
Step 1: Take a length of 0.8mm wire and make a bend in the middle using your round nosed pliers. This will form the bottom point of your heart.
Step 2: Make two curves to form the top of your heart using a wooden mandrel or any other thick tubed object (such as prit-stick or a thick marker). Adjust the wire with your hands to make a heart shape.
