I promised myself not to make any wire jewelries for a month... Though I couldn't keep the promise but I'm still Happy! :D
It feels so good when I make something in my head, then make it for real and it turns out exactly how I thought it would be. I was really happy with the final result :D

Anyways, check out this ible to find out how I made this wire heart wrapped ring.

This ring would be a cute gift for your special one, try making one :)

Step 1: Materials Needed

Picture of Materials Needed
To make this ring you'll need:
  1. Crafting wire - 18-20 gauge,
  2. Crafting pliers - looping, flat and cutting plier,
  3. Mandrel,
  4. Ruler.

Step 2: Making the first heart

Firstly, measure your ring size in inches or cm.

Hold the wire from one end (don't cut the wire from the bundle),
Create the first small loop at that end by using the looping plier,
Wind the wire around that loop only once to make the first small swirl of the first heart.

Bend the wire below the swirl to form the bottom of the heart (see the 3rd picture of this step),

Now create another loop on the bent wire (this should be the outer loop of the swirl) and circle the wire towards the center to form the second swirl of the heart.

There, first heart is done!

Step 3: Making a chain of hearts

When you're done making the first heart flip the heart around (see the 1st picture of this step),

Use the looping plier to make a small loop, then circle the wire around the loop once,
Now bend the wire to form the bottom of the second heart,

Before making the second swirl of the second heart you have to flip the whole wire again,
Now use the looping plier to make the outer loop of the swirl and circle the wire towards the center to form a swirl.

Continue to make more hearts till it reaches the required length, mine was 6cm.

I know this is gonna sound stupid, but I can't find the "I made it" button.
Muhaiminah Faiz (author)  Mich637 months ago

No, it's ok, the button is on the top right corner of the page. below the 'Vote' button.

Aha... your love for the swirls is blooming and that is a very beautiful ring. Copper is our choice of color I guess :-)
Muhaiminah Faiz (author)  Tarun Upadhyaya7 months ago

Swirls are crazy! Thanks and yes copper color is so classy :)

I hope to post a Swirly swirly project soon I hope :)

Muhaiminah Faiz (author)  Tarun Upadhyaya7 months ago

Great! I have 3 swirly projects on the go, but I'm trying my best to wait until the jewelry contest launches (it's sooo hard not to post) :P

OMG!! But so true.
Mich637 months ago
Thank you. I did my best with the finest pliers in my toolbox. It takes about a week for jeweler pliers to come in.
