Learn how to make this sweetheart ring in time for the Valentine's mood! ;) Eventhough listed as an advanced project, I believe intermediate to experienced beginner should also be able to follow the pictorial instructions. The more technical part of this tutorial involves embellishing on an organic shape but packed with 75 pictures illustrated over 39 steps, you will be guided step by step to completion.
This tutorial should also work well with other shapes and sizes of beads. Just bear in mind that, the bigger the size of the beads, the chunkier the final result ring. The size of the beads listed in the square brackets is the corresponding sizes required for the smaller size ring.
The bigger heart uses 4mm bicones whilst the smaller heart uses 3mm bicones.
Talking about heart shape rings, a jeweller friend of mine recently shared a few tips on how to wear your heart on your fingers.
If you hold your hand up to admire the ring, the heart would be smiling back at you. In that sense, you are wearing the heart for yourself to see and not for others. Therefore, when your fingers are pointing towards the ground, the heart shape should be upside down against gravity - symbolizing resilience.
