The Charming Hearts tutorial teaches, step by step the techniques needed to create perfect little hearts with a relatively small amount of wire (I've created hearts with as little as 2 inches [5.1cm]of wire each).
Create individual charms, with or without bead drops to accentuate a bracelet; create multiple sizes for cute dangle earrings. Add birthstone color beads or crystals to create a charming family bracelet, or use heavy gauge wire to create a simple charming pendant.
This pattern can be created in any metal of your choice; in either round, square, or twisted square wire; any gauge wire from 24g to 12g; in half-hard or dead soft. This tutorial will show you how to create hearts in round wire and heavy gauge square wire, with tips on finishing.
