This gurl thought she'd share the process of how to make a wire heart finger ring, just in case ya have a sweetie who'd like one.
You'll need wire (I used 20 gauge), round nose and cutting pliers and a glue stick or lip balm in order to shape the ring to fit your finger. You can always use your finger too! It may take you a few times to master this, so I suggest using scrap wire if you don't want to use up your red colored wire or precious metal wire.
Cut a piece of wire apprx. 5 inches.
Shape the wire on the glue stick or lip balm.
Now you have a 'U' shape.
Bend the left side with your round nose pliers just a bit above where the ring will hit the top of your finger.
Make a larger bend using your round nose pliers.
Pull the wire down for the first side of the heart and flatten it so it is on the top where it would lie on your finger.
Repeat for the other side.
Using your round nose pliers, connect the left side of the wire to the base with a small loop. You want to make sure it's tight and cut any excess wire so it won't snag on your finger or clothing.
This is the side connected to the ring portion. The ring portion is the large circle part on the top left. Repeat for the other side by pulling the wire end up to the left and connecting.
Your heart is shaped. Flatten down so it lies on top of your finger. You may have to wrangle the heart shape a bit to your liking. Clip any excess wire.
