Since the frames are already made, for this project we get to focus purely on embellishment! You'll find the detailed instructions for this frame in my Heart Frame Bracelet tutorial. Look for it in the education section here on WireJewelry.com
Cut a piece of 28 gauge wire 12” long.
Note: - If you are using larger sized beads, use 20” of 28 gauge wire, to avoid running out.
Attach the center of the 28 gauge wire to the centrer of the heart by binding 6 times.
Take care not to pull too tightly, as this will force the frame to overlap itself.
Tip: - if it does overlay slightly, squeeze the binding with the nylon jaw pliers gently, until the frame is flat again.
Coil the frame either side of the binding 6 times with the 28 gauge wire to secure the binding.
The coiling also moves the wire along the frame, so that it lines up with the bead holes. Place the briolettes in position to check.
