Beginning Wire Jewelry: Wire Heart Bracelet

advertisement

For this project you will need copper wire (or any other wire) that is thick enough to hold its shape while still being pliable with some force and tools. You will also need needle nosed pliers, standard pliers, and wire cutters.

-Starting with one end, use your needle nosed pliers to create a large M shape.
-Use your standard pliers to make the center of the m a bit sharper.
-Pull the two ends so they cross, then hold them in place with one set of pliers while you wrap the end of the wire around the other wire, cutting off excess.
-Mold the wire around a glass or cup in the side and shape you want to wear it.
-Bend the wire at the other end, making the tip of the bend overlap the heart by about a half an inch to an inch.
-Curve the end of the doubled wire to make a hook that will catch your heart.
-Hold tight with one set of pliers while you wrap and cut off the excess wire with the other set of pliers and snips.
