Tied Up Hearts.


(I randomly picked a name from the people who commented that they would like 
and the winner was #2: Rachel.

 I saw these fun earrings on Pinterest and thought I'd make them for a friend
for her birthday.

 I didn't have paperclips
(my kids are thieves)
so I used some heavier wire I had.




 I found this trick helped save time:
After forming the heart shape using the wire,

 open the wire back up again,
tie the string on (dabbing the knot with some glue),
and wrap the string tight and close together.



 Once the string has been wrapped well,
 close the heart back up
and wrap where the heart meets.

(Adding glue along the way as needed is a helpful tip).



After completing the wrapping,
the string gets tied, glued, and cut off..
I used silver findings for the earring hook, beads, and eye pin.
 
Have a happy day!
