What you need:
20cm x 4 of 24 gauge wire
Pliers (I used round nose and flat nose which have cutters)
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!)
Cut four of themmm
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~
(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
Separate the wires into pairs like that
Place marble on the coil at the bottom
Another picture for step 7...
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 :)
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.
After it's wrapped around, cut off excess wire.
You'll notice that you have three wires pointing downwards and three wires upward
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!
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
Curl all three
(As I've said, my wire was too short and that made my curls look all weird and starved or something :( )
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 :\
Curl the three wires that are tucked in
I did a few other designs too, but the main concept is basically the same :)
Have fun! :)
