This technique explains how to take a bead from your stash and wire wrap a link on each side.
Start by cutting the right length wire. I typically find that a good rule of thumb is to have 2 inches of wire on each side of your bead (4” total) plus the length of the bead. Bend your wire at a 90-degree angle approximately 1.5” down from one end.
While keeping your grip with the round nose pliers, wrap the wire over the top round nose.
Pull across longer wire.
Wrap wire around longer wire 2 times creating a coil.
Cut end with wire cutters.
String a bead.
Bend the wire at a 90-degree angle just above the bead. I use the length of the plier nose – this length typically equals 2 wire wraps.
While keeping your grip with you pliers, wrap the wire over the top round nose.
Pull across longer wire and wrap wire around approximately 2 times creating a coil until you hit the link. Both sides should have the same number of wraps.
