- Now that you have seen how VERY EASY it is to create your own French wires, let's take a peek at how to make that heart motif.
Take your 20 gauge half hard round sterling silver wire and wrap it around the round nose pliers about 1/3 of the way down the tip to make the first half of the heart.
Next take your flat pliers and tighten up the loop.
Use the flat nose pliers to bend the tip of the heart into a point.
Take the round nose pliers and round over the wire to create the other half of the heart. Finish up as the ear wire 101 tutorial instructions recommend.
Happy Wire Bending!
