I got my inspiration for this project on Pinterest. This is the pin that I'm talking about. This was the first time using these techniques: tracing an image with wire and adding beads to a wire base shape. I'm really glad with how my pendant turned out and I think the colour combination looks great! I really hope you like it too :)

Step 1: Materials

To make a beaded heart pendant, you will need the following:

  • Wire (this will be used for the basic heart shape
  • coloured wire matching your beads
  • beads
  • pliers
  • a necklace to put it on (or a closure and a lace)
  • jump rings
what type of wire did you use?
<p>The silver wire is gauge 20 silver plated wire, the red wire is coated copper wire. </p>
<p>Thank you for your Instructable</p><p>Nice job.</p><p>Rima</p>
<p>I attempted this project. just getting use to making jewellery with wire</p>
<p>That's great to hear! How did it go? </p>
Hi Emily, my daughter and I made an attempt on your pendant for Mother's Day, not as good as yours, but her mammy loved it! It was really good to sit down and have father daughter time to make this. ;-) thanks again
<p>That's great! I would love to see a picture :)</p>
<p>congratulations em..! :D</p>
<p>Thanks Faiza! :D </p>
<p>Congratulations Emily!!! Your pendant deserved so much more than runner up in my opinion. Anyway, it was definitely a fun contest and that's the most important thing! :)</p>
<p>Thank you so much Linda and congratulations to you as well! I was really surprised it was a finalist actually :D <em>and, it's the T-shirts I collect :p. </em> It was definitely fun! Will there be an entry from you in the jewelry contest in a few weeks? </p>
<p>Thank you! Emily, you are the queen of jewelry so I expect to see the jewelry contest populated by your ibles! :D I'm not even half as good as you so I'm not sure if I will enter it yet...I will see if I get an idea for a jewelry project, contests always inspire me to create new things :)</p>
<p>Thank you so much Linda :) You could make an instructable of the cute bracelet I'm wearing right now :D That's what I love about contests!! <em>and, you can win stuff just by sharing something you made!!!!</em> </p>
<p>Oh you are right!! :D Any idea of what I could &quot;write&quot; in it? Maybe the word &quot;Instructables&quot; but that would probably be too long for a regular bracelet...</p>
<p>You could try instructables, if that doesn't work out you could go for diy or for Linda :) </p>
<p>Wait, maybe I got an idea...I will work on it :D</p>
<p>I only have to finish two intros, then my small collection of drafts is finished :D </p>
<p>Wow, I'm getting curious...!!! :D</p>
<p>I agree with Linda, but then again the contests are full of shocks &amp; surprises ..aren't they? :D Congratulations Emily!!!!! </p>
<p>Thank you! They sure are :D </p>
<p>i agree with you linda.</p>
<p>Yaaay!!! Congratulations Emily :)</p>
<p>Thank you!! :D </p>
<p>This is simply lovely :-) I really need to find the time to go hunt for colored wire and stuff!</p>
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>This is such a cute pendant! I love it! I can't believe I didn't see it before...</p>
<p>Thank you so much Linda! It hasn't been on for THAT long :) </p>
<p>Oh good, I saw the date was yesterday's date so I thought I missed it!</p>
<p>The date almost would have been today, since clicking the publish button was the last thing I did before going to sleep :) </p>
<p>This is the best, cutest beaded heart pendant ever! LOVE IT &lt;3 ..</p><p> I think I'm going to post a swirly heart very soon! ;)</p>
<p>Yay! Thank you so much Muhaiminah :D :D </p>
<p>That is one cute heart :), I keep telling that I see heart shaped thinking clouds over everyone's head these days :)</p>
<p>Thank you! the curves were made by trying to shape the wire slightly in the curve and at the same time letting it goo over my nail, which resulted in smoother lines :)</p>
<p>Aha... Handy nails :D</p>
<p>They sure are :)</p>
<p>This is very pretty, thanks for sharing your hard work!</p><p>sunshiine</p>
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
<p>So cute! How do you get such smooth curves?</p>
<p>Thanks Nicole! The curves were made by trying to shape the wire slightly in the curve and at the same time letting it go over my nail, which resulted in smoother lines :)</p>
<p>I agree. How? :)</p>
