Twin Hearts Wire Ring For your Valentine

Featured
Picture of Twin Hearts Wire Ring For your Valentine

"I feel it in my fingers I feel it in my toes, the love that's all around me And so the feeling grows."

All you love filled hearts,

Tell me that you are feeling like these amazing lines from the the song "Love is all around" from Wet wet wet. Because I do. And because of that my creativity factor seems like working in full form.

A few days back I published this ible for a Valentine's Day Heartbeat necklace and all you amazing people loved it. Thank you so much. Since then the idea of making hearts using wires got stuck in my mind and today I came up with this beautiful wire ring which I call "Twin Hearts Ring". I think it will be a wonderful companion to the Heartbeat necklace.

And you know it is easy to make too.. sounds like fun? Lets get started.

P.S: Dear instructables, Thank you letting me know that I can make jewelry too, which I had never imagined in my life ever.

Step 1: Simple stuff you need

Picture of Simple stuff you need
stuff2.jpg

Some pliers like round nose, flat nose and wire cutter

A mandrael or some round object of varying thickness

Two types of jewelry wire (copper, steel or silver your choice), see image above to have an idea:

  1. Thick wire: 18-20 gauge
  2. Thin wire: 30-32 gauge (for wrapping)
  3. Lots of love in your heart :)

Yup that's all you need :).

I suggest using enameled copper if you must use that material. Experience has taught me that at very close contact,( by that I mean rings) will turn your skin green.

You are very right...interestingly it took me a while to figure out that the cooper wire I used is actually enameled :). I did not know that :)

while ur on the copper green topic,this might seem like hocus pocus, but my grandma used to say that the copper only turns ur skin green if ur unwell/not that healthy.if ur health is fine,it won't discolor ur skin.I tried it too,kind of works but difficult to reason logic.

Made this with some magnet wire I had and some black wire, both enameled copper. I loved your Instructable!

Omg, I had just finished to tell Muhaiminah how good she is at working with wire and then I saw this...it's gorgeous!! I wish I was as good as you, Muhaiminah and Emily with wire!

Tarun Upadhyaya (author)  lindarose925 months ago

Oh Linda.. you are so kind. You know I had same thoughts before I got my hands on wire, trust me you just need to start it and then its like working with clay, whatever you make, it will always have some nice shape :)

I must definitely get some wire soon, after seeing all these great projects I need to experiment with it too :D
