Jewelry Tutorial – How to Wire Wrap Nest Beads with Wire.

Begin with a length of wire and wrap around a doweling – the size depends on how large you want the beads to be.

Start off with a bit of wrapping and then crisscross as many times as possible.  How many times depends on aesthetic.


Keep crisscrossing until there is only a bit of wire left.  Then remove the doweling and using a pair of round nose pliers, twirl the end to make it smaller. 

If you are trying to put a chain through, put the chain through before you twirl the ends of the wire.  And then tuck in the ends.  This way it turns into a slight drop and now you can use it as a regular bead.
