Item Id: VIDEO-0129 review 3 Review(s) Write a Review Write a Review


Aunties Beads brings you the next step in wire making. This video covers easy to make wire wrapped beads, a great way to add elegance and your personal style to any bead. Be sure to practice and allow your wire wrapping to take its own path. The more you practice the better your results will be and the quicker you will move through your projects.

See below for additional videos in our wire wrap series. We'll add just a bit of complexity as we go. In coming videos, we will spotlight an entire bracelet of wire wrapped beads.

Tips and Tricks
  • To ensure uniform loops, put a small piece of tape on your round nose pliers and align your wire with it.
  • Insert the tip of your round nose pliers into an existing loop to gain leverage as you wrap the bead.

Rating Wrapped Beads a breeze
I found this video very helpful. The entire series has been very good. After watching this one, I have wrapped several beads quite successfully. It is great to be able to take beautiful stones and give them even more character by wrapping them. I look forward to more of the wire wrapping videos.

Rating Wire Wrapping Beads -3
This was an excellent demonstration. I found myself intently watching to insure that I am doing things properly. One question it left me with was - the "ends" of her wrap seem to just be wherever they end; don't they catch on things? For example, the "frame around the bead" is not closed and opening/edge is exposed. Thanks for this series.
Judy's Repsonse:These are valid questions. The one end is demonstrated to be fitted up flush against the coil around the loop at the top of the bead. This should keep the end from finding anything to catch on. The end that is on the bead itself should not snag if flush against the bead; however, if you find that it does, then you can use a file to smooth the edges. You would need to file it away from the bead so either file the end before finishing the wrap flush against the bead or pull it gently away from the bead, file it and then put it back flush against the bead. I will cover this better in the next video.
