Twisting Wire, Loopy WrappingI've been practicing my wire wrapping, trying to learn ways to use some of my patterned round beads.
I didn't want to start with some of my favorite beads, I've learned that the first few attempts might be less than perfect, to say the very least.
So I got out some old beads I made a long while back and started playing with the wire, trying to teach myself ways to enclose the beads and make an interesting chain.
I hope as I learn and practice it will go more quickly, it took me several hours of fitting and fidgeting to get this small length of chain.
Not completely happy with it, but I did learn a lot. I want to be able to make a bracelet using this type of bead, and I have some graduated sized beads in the expeditionD shop now, a set of five, that would be fun to do this way.
Needless to say these will be for me to keep as practice pieces, they are very rough and I know I can do better as I practice. But it was fun, and I enjoy learning and trying new things. I will extend the length with other types of chain link wire and make a bracelet.
I want to take some of the zephyr bead rounds and enclose them in wire wrapping like this, to make a pendant.
