Pattern Details

Hearts are one of the most popular designs in jewelry but it's difficult to find a design that is neither too simplistic nor too complicated. This design looks quite elaborate and sophisticated but is in fact very quick and easy to make and requires very little material. Once you have learnt how to make it you won't be able to stop making many more! I have also included some useful weaving tips. 20 steps, 12 pages BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Using a jig Wire wrapping Making loops Hammering SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The finished heart is about 3cm/1 1/4" high and wide.

My passion for jewellery designing and making started 12 years ago with a silversmithing course and I have since embraced other techniques such as stringing, bead weaving, chain maille, resin but my true love is wirework in which I now specialize. I have contributed a monthly project to Beads & Beyond for the past 3 years, written numerous tutorials which I sell on my website and I am the author of The Absolute Beginner's Guide: Making Wire Jewellery (published by Kalmbach books) which teaches you in great detail all the basic techniques you need to become proficient at wirework. Don't forget to download my free tutorial about the basic tools you need to get started in wirework.
