Two Easy Wire Wrapping Jewelry Tutorials for Beginners

By on Saturday, February 19, 2011 Comments

Most wire artisans will probably agree the only way to get good at wire work is to practice a lot. So here are two easy wire wrapping jewelry tutorials to get you started.

The first is Mariana Kirkpatrick's double wire wrapped hoop earrings video tutorial. It's a classic style with loads of potential color and bead variations.  Stop at the outer wrap if you like. A 20G (half hard) and 26G wire combination will also work. (Update : This video has been removed by the user)

If the above tutorial is too intimidating, try this one. Perfectly Twisted designed this easy bead and wire wire wrapped hair spirals. The beads and crystals really make it very pretty.  With a bit of individual flair, the design can be adapted for earring dangles or pendants!

  1. thank you for a wonderfull video tutorial!

  2. I cannot take credit for the video but I am glad you found it useful!

  3. You have a lot of useful tutorials! I,m just a beginner and it helps me so much!
    Thanks a lot! :)

  4. Wonderful tutorials. I especially like the step by step tutorial of Perfectly Twisted, sometimes following instructions on a page is much easier than trying to keep up on a video. Maybe it's just me but I've not found a pause and rewind button on those videos yet, perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places?
    Pearl you're so right about the hair spirals making nice earrings or pendants with slight modifications.

    (Just had to share, my word verification was "grande" how grand is that?) :)

  5. Anna, you can stop a video by hitting the stop button. Slide that button backwards to review a section again! Sort of like rewinding!

    Ah, that's why you got the "grande" for being such a regular commentator!

  6. Thank you so very much! I am going to make up some of the hair spirals to give as gifts. So quick and easy and it would really help me develop my wire wrapping skills.

  7. It is us who must thank you Mariana for taking the time to share the awesome tutorial! Pearl

  8. I clicked through to this page just now and found that the featured tutorial is no longer available. I don't know if you go back to edit things but I thought it might be helpful to note the "missing" video (so others don't get their hopes up and try to find it somewhere else :)

  9. Thanks Allie for letting me know. I have updated the post so others will know the video has been removed from Youtube.
