Red Heart Pearl Pendant
Love is at the heart of this pearl lined pendant. Romantic enough to wear for Valentine’s day or any day of the year. Large and small pearls border the red beads, maybe protecting it from heartbreak? Beads, wire and a few tools are all this project requires. Make it for yourself or someone special.
To avoid a lot of kinks and bends in the 26 gauge wire, work with a length that is comfortable for you. When you run out of wire while working, just start a new length by wrapping around the 18 gauge wire three times to continue.
Don’t stress if the original heart shaped wire gets slightly distorted from tugging at wire and beads while you work. You can turn the pendant over and pull the 18 gauge wire back into shape.
To create definition in the top of the heart, pull and bend one of the red beads to form a center point.
