Like contemporary style wire wrapped designs?  Then check out Estonian designer's Suzy Wong Studio Youtube channel. She has several elegant and simpler designs to inspire like this selection of wire wrapped bangles. Along the way, you will learn how to make different kinds of wire bangles.

She uses 16- 18 G wire for the bangle. I recommend 18 G if you are still fairly new to wire wrapping as the 16 G is quite thick. I also like 26 G wire for wrapping as it looks more obvious than 28 G.

Also try and work harden the bangle before adding the pearls or crystals. Use a mandrel - it could be an ABS pipe or even a stainless steel car exhaust pipe (see mine here) - and a nylon or rubber hammer.

Mind you, pearls are just an option. You can certainly use round crystals for the extra bling. 

The first tutorial - the design is shown above - has a long row of pearls.

The second design has no clasp.  You can slip on the bracelet by putting the narrow part of your wrist through the gap. 

This third one uses has potential for changing up the way the beads are added. I would add another row of crystals or pearls on the opposite side but offset.
