I've always admired this technique, and finally tried my hand at it yesterday,  Easier than expected, and lots of fun!!  Hearts are on on my mind, since Valentine's Day is around the corner...

I never would have guessed those were your first attempts.  Your's were definitely much better than mine were.

beautiful work - I tried some hearts a few days ago out of red wire, 16 g.  I didn't get to finish with a wrap to hold together the end, but yours are just right.  Are the hearts pendants or earrings?  It looks like they could go either way.  thanks.
