Happy Valentine’s Day!… and More Heart Jewelry!

After my Heart Jewelry Inspiration post and my Heart Wire Jewelry, are you sick of heart jewelry yet? I kind of am! But I have two more pieces I want to share with you. Unfortunately, this post is more of just a show and tell. No step by step instructions. Sorry!

Heart Wire Ring

Check out my new heart wire ring (but ignore my uber dry skin!):

Heart Ring

This piece is made out of 16 gauge, Silver German Jewelry Wire.

I started this piece almost exactly like my Heart Wire Hoop Earrings. I folded the wire at about 1/3 the length of the wire. I used the thickest part of my needle-nose pliers to create my round bumps. I crossed both ends of the wire to form the V part of the heart. I then bent one wire straight – this will be the wire that wraps around your finger. The other wire end was then wrapped around the other end and the excess was cut off.

I wrapped the remaining wire end around a finger mandrel. Make sure to use a size or two smaller than what you want. I finished the end by making a P loop. This allows for my ring to be adjustable. I then hammered my ring to flatten it out. After getting the look I wanted, I moved the ring down the mandrel until it enlarged to the size I wanted.

I hope that makes sense. Sorry I didn’t take any pictures. I plan on doing a post or two specifically on rings at a later time.

Heart Necklace Closure

Here is the heart necklace closure I made for my heart pendant:

This piece is also made out of 16 gauge, Silver German Jewelry Wire.

I used the same exact technique for the wire ring, except instead of wrapping it around a finger mandrel I made a wrapped O eye (tutorial coming soon!) to connect to the silver necklace chain. I then made a hook by wrapping it around a pencil mandrel in a similar manner to my Easy Peasy Earwires. I attached a garnet swarovski crystal bead to the heart closure end so it will match my heart pendant.

Heart Pendant Giveaway

Don’t forget that A Crafter’s Dream Group Giveaway is going on right now! I will be giving away the Heart Pendant I shared with you last week, which is now attached to the silver chain that the heart closure above is for. Here it is again, in case you forgot:

    • Thank you! It is cute! I have eczema, so I just can’t win during the winter. I’m always taking pictures of doing jewelry and then look at my pictures and groan. Oh, well. It’s just how it is sometimes.:)

  3. Your heart jewelry is awesome, and as a huge fan of rings, this one has to be my favorite piece! And it’s totally something to wear year-round, dressy or casual…. Way to end the heart edition on a strong note! Happy Valentine’s Day to you, Bethany.
