This necklace design was created to use with a 25mm heart drilled horizontally. It incorporates some weaving of the wire, the use of wrapped loops to connect chain and the attachment of a closure to the chain. With a little imagination, other components such as beads or head pin attachments can be added for different looks (as shown in the finished photo).

Instructions
Step 1
Straighten and then cut the 22-gauge square wire into the following lengths: two pieces each 7", and two pieces each 3" long. Also cut one piece 6" long of 20-gauge half round half hard wire. Bundle the three 7" wires and tape the ends. Measure and mark the center and then mark ¼" on each side of the center.

From each of the side-of-center marks made, use the 6" piece of 20-gauge half round to wrap 4 times to show, working away from the center and trim.

Step 5
Use a pin vise to individually twist each of the two inside or center, wires on each side of the heart. Weave these wires together and tape the end wires together on each side. Shape wires so they will cross above the center of the heart.

Step 6
Bend the outside wire upwards, to lie over the top wire. Trim this outside wire to 3/16-inch longer than where it crosses over the top wire. At this 3/16-inch end, use chain-nose and then flat nose pliers to form and then attach a small loop to the top wire. Repeat on the other side.
