Title says all :)

First attempt at wire wrapping. I don't think I did toooo badly, but the more I look at it the less I like it :\
May consider doing a how-to if anyone's interested :)

Instructions

You Will Need


Project Cost
Almost Nothing

  1. Step 1 1

    What you need:
    20cm x 4 of 24 gauge wire
    Pliers (I used round nose and flat nose which have cutters)
    Ruler
    Marble

  2. Step 2 2

    Measure 20cm of the 24 gauge wire

    (Note: Uh, I did this a while back so I kinda forgot how much i used and when I started making this tutotrial I used 16cm but that ended being too short D: So I added another 4cm to it. So basically you might want to use slightly more. Sorry for the confusion!)

  3. Step 3 3

    Cut four of themmm

  4. Step 4 4

    Cut a shorter wire (I cut about 10cm) and wrap the four wires together in the centre

    *Make sure the wires are lined up like that flat! :)

    ~If you have no problem with this, move on to step 6~

  5. Step 5 5

    (There's probably a better way to do this, but I've only been doing wirework for about over half a year and this is the way I found worked for me)

    1. Bend the wire in half and pinch the middle with pliers but make sure there's a gap for the wires.
    2.Place the wire on the other four (as shown in picture)
    3. Make sure the wires are flat and take one side of the wire and bend it over the other four
    4.Repeat with other end
    5.Repeat until there's a long enough coil

  6. Step 6 6

    Separate the wires into pairs like that

  7. Step 7 7

    Place marble on the coil at the bottom

  8. Step 8 8

    Another picture for step 7...

  9. Step 9 9

    Bend the wires upwards, around the marble to keep it into place. The marble may fall out (or jump in my case) a few times but keep trying.

    *Try to keep the sections equal :)

  10. Step 10 10

    You have to take three of the eight wires and bend then downwards to form that loopy for the chain or whatever.

    Take two wires and bend it across all the wires so that you can wrap around it.

  11. Step 11 11

    After it's wrapped around, cut off excess wire.

  12. Step 12 12

    You'll notice that you have three wires pointing downwards and three wires upward

  13. Step 13 13

    Take the ends of the wire and curl them. If you think the wire is too long and the curl will be too big, just cut some off but don't cut off too much!

  14. 14

    For the one I had made before, I had made it so that the curl didn't have a hole in it, but it doesn't matter so much, just depends on how you prefer it

  15. Step 15 15

    Curl all three

    (As I've said, my wire was too short and that made my curls look all weird and starved or something :( )

  16. Step 16 16

    Now for the other three wires, bend it gently back and tuck it behind wires like in the photo to keep them in place

    (I did it really badly and messily here, but i hope you get the point :\
    )

  17. Step 17 17

    Curl the three wires that are tucked in

  18. Step 18 18

    Done!

  19. Step 19 19

    I did a few other designs too, but the main concept is basically the same :)

  20. Step 20 20

    Have fun! :)
