Wire wrapping earrings or perhaps bracelets doesn't have to be difficult! Not if you use Swarovski rhinestone chains for maximum impact!
Two fabulous rhinestone crystal chain bracelet tutorials by Allie over at Miss Lovie Creations should convince you. I really cannot decide which I like better - the Threads and Rhinestone bracelet or the Braided bracelet . They both look classy. (Be sure to check out her other craft tutorials!)
This Ornamentea tutorial by Tracey Johnson called the Beatrice Circlet earrings is just the ticket to spruce up any outfit. The set crystals are already evenly spaced so the wire wrapping is a little easier.

The Part 1 video tutorial shows how to make the curved half hoops.
Part 2 covers how to make the ear wire part and the wire wrapping of the rhinestone chain. It helps to make both ear wires together to ensure they are the same.
If you like the look of woven chains, then you'll love the tutorial by I Spy DIY blog. It makes use of inexpensive chain and crystal chain woven together with suede.
Now this tutorial by Maneki over at Wild Roses and Blackberries is the cat's meow because it teaches you how to make your own Swarovski crystal chain using Swarovski crystal montees. Montees are awesome!
