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
- Crafting wire - 18-20 gauge,
- Crafting pliers - looping, flat and cutting plier,
Step 2: Making the first heart
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
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.
