Wire Wrapping Beads To The Bangle
Step 1: Cut a 3-foot length of wire.
Step 2: Secure the wire to the bangle by wrapping one end of the wire around the bangle 3 times.
Step 3: Feed a bead onto the wire.
Step 4: Wrap the bead in place by positioning it on the outside edge of the bangle and bringing the wire around to the opposite side of the bangle.
Step 5: Wrap the wire tightly around the bangle 3 1/2 times.
Step 6: Repeat Steps 3-5 until the wire is too short to add another bead.
Step 7: Secure the wire end by wrapping it around the bangle 4 times. Cut all wire ends flush.
Tip: If the end of the wire feels scratchy, simply squeeze the end against the bangle with chain nose pliers.
Adding a New Wire To Complete The Bracelet
Step 1: Cut a new 3-foot length of wire.
Step 2: Secure the new wire to the bangle by wrapping one end of the wire on top of the previous wire wraps 3 times. (This will make for a bigger wrap, but don’t worry no one will notice.)
Step 3: Continue adding beads using the same techniques outlined above.
Step 4: Finish the bracelet by wrapping the wire on top of the beginning wraps. (The wrapped beads can be pushed closer together to make the perfect amount of space for the final bead.)
Step 5: Cut the wire ends flush against the bangle.
