Wire Wrapping

I've been interested in wire wrapping jewellery for a while, when I come across photos of beautiful designs,  I want to give it a go and see what I can come up with. Well, I came across a large bead, that's been sitting in my bead box since the summer. I had some gold plated 20 gauge wire, which is  softer than the normal 20 gauge wire, was my work table, so I started playing around with it and this is what I came up with.

It's not perfect, but I like it, I'm wearing it right now. The  wire could of been wound a bit tighter and I could of wrapped the base a bit better, but I think it's ok first a first attempt. I've already ordered some more craft wire to try and practise with. Wire wrapping has now joined my crafting 'To Do' list, which keeps growing. I'll be showing my makes on here, as and when I create them.

Bye for now

  1. Hi Michelle,I've not visited your blog before. I love these. I've wire wrapped bracelets but never tried to wrap stones. They look really effective. Sue X
