My DIY | Heart Bracelet

During my last LA trip I met up with my friend, and phenomenal jewelry designer, Robyn Rhodes, to look at her new line and learn how to turn my heart ring DIYinto a bracelet (one that you may have noticed according to my Instagram, I wear everyday). We stopped by some of Robyn’s favorite jewelry supplies spots, then headed back to her studio to DIY! Steps after the break
Wearing: All Robyn Rhodes jewelry, get the wire bow bracelet here 
Supplies: 
16 Gauge Half Round Half Hard 14/20 Gold Filled Wire – 5FT

Jewelry Pliers, Round and flat
Cup
 
Steps: 
1. First, at one end of the wire, make two rounded humps by wrapping the wire around the thick part of your round nose pliers
2. Then squeeze the valley in between with the flat nose pliers to create the heart shape
3. Next, cross the short end of the wire across the longer side
4. Then wrap the shorter wire around the longer side two times and cut off the excess
5. Next wrap wire around a cup to create the rounded part, fit to the size of your wrist
6. To create the hook, bend the other end of the wire so it is doubled up for as least an inch
7. Bend again a half an inch down to create the hook
8. Wrap the excess around the base of the bracelet 3 times and trim the excess
