Show someone a little love this Valentine's Day with this easy wire wrapped heart ring tutorial by Julie Lockhart/Copar Aingeal.  This is a free tutorial on Craftsy - you do have to join (free) in order to download the PDF. The tutorial is excellent for beginners as it teaches several wire working techniques.

See that sharp, flat wire bend at the "valley" of the heart?  Julie demonstrates how to get that look which also ensures the wire bend stays that way.

I find pens, pencils, knitting needles, bailing pliers are also good alternatives to fingers and round nose pliers the instructor suggested.

You will also learn how to wire wrap small beads and coil wire around foundation wires. And lastly how to measure, curve and complete the ring band.
