This tutorial is also available as part of a package here ==> https://www.jewelrytoolbox.shop/listing/130433459/double-chained-beads-bracelet-with-woven?ref=shop_home_active.
You will also receive my Wrapped Infinity Link Tutorial. In that tutorial you will learn to make an attractive and chunky wire connector as in the last photo.
You can use just about any gauge to make wrapped beads. I use large 16 gauge wire in the photos so that you can see the details of each step large and up close.
The tutorial will cover lots of important details and techniques, such as:
How to get the loops placed exactly where I want them every time.
How to make perfectly round loop.
How to make a secure bead cap.
How to make a double wrapped looped.
How to make incredible wrapped beads with no ends sticking out and using just one piece of wire.
This is an intermediate level tutorial. All the steps are contained within, however some wire experience will help you in handling the wire and getting it to do what you want it to do.
In this tutorial I do NOT cover how to make spirals. I cover that in a variety of other tutorials that you can purchase where you purchased this tutorial. Spirals are covered in my Wire Whimsy and also in One-Wire Chandelier Earrings. They are found here: https://www.jewelrytoolbox.shop/listing/130226300/wire-whimsy-beginning-wire-jewelry
and here https://www.jewelrytoolbox.shop/listing/130227827/chandelier-earrings-beginning-wire
Contains full color photographs and text for each step. Just print those pages that you want to have at hand while you work if you want to save on paper.
For a bracelet of five beads you will need:
15 feet Copper round dead soft 18 gauge wire. Copper or Sterling Silver are my favorites. You can also use craft wire, silver filled or gold filled.
6 feet Copper round dead soft 24 gauge wire
5 or more 12mm round beads
You can use any gauge round dead soft wire. I like the gauge to match the size of the beads I am wrapping. I used 16 gauge in the photos so that you can see it in the photos better. I teach the class with 18 gauge and round beads no smaller than 12mm.
Fine Round Nose pliers
Round Nose pliers (fatter). My favorite is the Six Step Bail Making pliers. You can see these here ==> https://www.jewelrytoolbox.shop/124176204/six-step-bail-making-pliers
Flat nose or chain nose pliers
Flush wire cutter
