8 DIY Heart Jewelry Projects

This list contains some wonderful heart-themed jewelry projects with links to the free tutorials to help you make your own. All of these projects use a wire heart that you can make yourself, but even if you don't want to make your own frame, you'll get some ideas on how to embellish store-bought frames, or you can use the technique on individual links or large links from a store-bought chain.

When these projects use thin wire to attach beads, consider trying the same technique using Fireline or a macrame cord like C-Lon, S-Lon or similar thread. The only difference will be that you need to knot the wire to the frame.
