Wire Wrapped Beads

One of the post popular project posted on my site has been the Bead and Wire Chain. This is an extremely versatile technique which can be used for making bracelets, necklaces, or even earrings, so it’s no surprise that’s it has been so well received. In addition to making a chain using wire and beads, many wire lovers also like to wrap the beads in the chain with wire. As with the chain itself, this method of wire work is pretty simple and has endless possibilities. Basically the techniques are very similar, but to wrap the beads you need to take a few extra steps.

You’ll need:

Round-nosed pliers
Wire cutters
Chain-nosed pliers
Jewelers’ files
