Dangling Hearts

The photos aren’t very good, but this is my first actual attempt with free-form wire working. Thought I’d give it a try yesterday. I was inspired by a tutorial on youtube by Jocelyn D. Designs. She does some really pretty and simple stuff, but does a great job explaining free-form style and techniques.
I’ll keep practicing. I know these are uneven and not up to my usual standards, but for my first try, they’re “wear-able”. Kind of “organic” in style. LOL! I did wear them to our monthly line-dancing social last night.

Materials: 20ga coated silver beading wire leverbacks 6mm red swarovski bicones 4mm red swarovski bicones hand-made eye pins

Techniques: free form wire shaping stringing

Cindy Weingate ...

Very nice job for being your first try at freeform! Very pretty! Keep up the good work!

Terrie ...

Thanks … you’re too kind! You’re a master at this. I wanna be like you when I grow up. LOL!

Annah Kay ...

Great first attempt Terrie! Completely wearable imo :) My first try was horrible and I never showed anyone lol. Just kinda pretended it never happened.

Terrie ...

LOL! Well, I thought these looked kinda organic, and I’m not too ashamed of them. I’ll get better w/ practice!
Thank you, Annah!

Cheryl Lojewski ...

I think they look great!

I think they are beautiful. Perfect isn’t everything 😊. Different is better than perfect 😉 they are one of a kind creation. And that makes them beautiful. If we all made perfect things then they are just pieces, when we make our own styles,we then have creations.

Terrie ...

Thank you, Cheryl and penpen. I appreciate the boost of confidence. :-)

Marta ...

You go girl! You will master it! I may even try this!

Terrie ...

You go for it, Marta! 😀 Today is an official holiday [presidents’ wknd] so I plan to park myself in front of YouTube and practice, practice, practice!

Terrie ...

Thank you, Linda. 😉

Martha Brownell ...

I think they are beautiful! We are always our harshest critic! I agree with Penpen, great job!

Terrie ...

Thank you, Martha! You know, when you are wearing stuff like this, and they are in constant motion, who is really going to notice all the little picky stuff, anyway? I wore them last Saturday night, and felt very good about them. Thank you, again! All of you!
