Working with Wire Episode 5: How to Wrap Donut Pendants

Part Number:VIDEO-0123

In Episode 4 we illustrated how to wire wrap a top drilled pendant. This Episode continues our wire wrapping and addresses how you can go about wire wrapping a "donut" pendant. A Donut pendant is a pendant with a whole right through the center and is typically a fairly large opening. In this video we use 20 or 18 gauge wire for simple illustration, however, should you be a more experience wire artisan, please feel free to challenge yourself and use a 14 or 16 gauge wire. After you have mastered this you will be ready to wire wrap almost anything you come across.

Frustrating Video
I appreciate that we are provided instructional videos at Auntie's, but I gave up halfway through this one. It is very frustrating when the wire, the tools, and the hands showing us the technique disappear from view and we're left repeatedly, for two or three seconds at a time, with nothing to see but the work space. Meanwhile, the instructor continues to work and talk about what she's "showing" us. I love Judy Mertz, Auntie’s Beads Designer. I think the issues with watching the video might have to do with the camera and needing to change from close up range to a little more of a wide angle during parts of the video.
