Time Required to Complete:
Your Choice of Beads
24 gauge or Thinner Wire
We get asked almost daily how to wrap beads: what materials to use, what tools are needed and how do we make ours look so perfect! Here is how we do in in colorful photos and written descriptions. Once you see the best way to do it, the rest is just practice, practice, practice! The basic technique for making a "neat" or "messy" wrap starts the same as the tutorial shows. If you would like the "messy" look like in the second photo, just continue on with your wire in a random but aesthetically pleasing way; your creation will be secure with the basic structure shown.
