This pretty heart shaped pendant is formed by two overlapped woven hearts and filled with precious beads. The challenge of the project is not really in the shaping of the piece, but yet keeping the thin wire from kinking and breaking off while weaving.
Update note: please use only soft wire when forming the hearts, as the considerable bending and forming can be quite challenging using half hard.
