Wrapping A Loop

Finished Wrapped Loop

Finished Wrapped Loop

Wrapping a loop will enable you to make earrings, chain-like necklaces or Rosaries, as well as, make almost any bead a pendant.  The technique you will view on our free print-out is wrapped using a basic headpin.  If you find the hole of your bead to be too large for the headpin, simply add a small spacer bead on the headpin first.

Wrapping loops well only comes with practice!  We recommend grabbing a spool of Parawire and wrapping 20-30 loops until it feels comfortable for you.

Tools needed: Chain Nose Pliers, Round Nose Pliers, and Side Cutter or Flush Cutter
