2. Make the heart shape

Take one side of the "M" and cross it over the other side to create a heart shape.

Pinching the center of the heart

3. Pinch the center of the heart

Use the pliers to pinch the center of the heart so they’re closer together, effectively closing the gap.

Then, with the pliers, create a small loop on the short end of the heart.

5. Make the ring part

Now you need to measure the wire to know how big to make your heart ring. To do this, place the heart in the center of your finger and wrap the wire around your finger to know how much wire you’ll need.

When you have the length, remove the wire from your finger and cut the wire where you measured it.

6. Make another loop at the end

Now repeat step four and create a small loop on the other end, so the wire doesn’t end up cutting you.

Then, you can use the nose pliers to turn the loop so it’s flat and not digging into your finger when you put on the ring.

    Wow, that's gorgeous! I'm wondering how soft the wire really is - it looked like you moved it easily - and if you catch it as you go through your day. Does it pull off and get bent? Is there a way to temper or harden the wire?
