Making Filigree, Step Two

After you've got your bazillion strips of filigree wire, its time to start bending them into pretties. Don't forget to save all your snippets of silver wire!

Filigree Wire Strips   Save those silver snippets!

I am making a design with random filigree swirlies instead of a pattern, otherwise you should sketch out your pattern and make the specific pretties you will need!

Bending a heart

I'm making heart-shaped pendants, so to keep them symmetrical I bend both pieces of wire at once.
