Whether it is a jump ring or a fancy wire heart like this one, you can make wonderful earrings using a technique that goes back to wrapping thread on rings to make shade pulls from the 20's. I had been working with regular jump rings and metallic thread with much success. I found these little heart wires (completely solid all the way around! : ) and thought it would make a very nice earring set. These hearts come in three sizes, this being the smallest. I've been in search of other shapes as well and with all the chains and links out there for jewelry making these days you are bound to find treasures. Thanks to Krystle and Jon (25 motif) for their inspiration in modernizing an old technique!
