Tools:

  • chain-nose pliers
  • round-nose pliers
  • side cutters
  • chasing hammer
  • steel block
  • 2-hole metal punch
  • patina supplies


Instructions:


I made the "beefy-sized" eye pins out of 16g nickel-silver wire (could easily be made out of sterling silver); I formed one side of the loop, hammered it, patinaed it, added the beads, formed the second loop, hammered it, and finally touched up the patina.

I bent the two-loop bars to create bails for the heart beads, and the plating does chip off a bit, but a quick touch up of patina takes care of the problem.
