You can make anything your heart desires with Artbeads Designer Wire! Cynthia made a sweet heart shape then added beads by wire-wrapping them onto the heart frame. Dakota Stones gemstones and Swarovski beads from an Artbeads Designer Blend come together beautifully. She even finished the necklace with Artbeads Designer Wire by creating an S-hook clasp with a touch of blue to match the color palette of the beads. Learn how to make this necklace in our Artbeads Shaped Designer Wire Artbeads Cafe episode, or follow our step-by-step instructions.
