  • wrapped loops

    How easy are wrapped loops? I have been trying to have a go at them as I think they look so much better and finished off, but I am having trouble mastering it. I have been on you tube and watched the tutorial but still cannot grasp it. Perhaps I should got to a class, but I only want to learn this one thing. Any tips would be most appreciated.

        no wonder you cant get the hang of it the first few seconds threw me. hang about a min will find a better one.

        This is a bit better Although I do mine slightly diffrent. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3MFalUEHk1g

        with practice you can do this. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=cWBVMA...eature=related use some cheap wire and just practise diffrent ways to get whats comfortable for you.

          Thanks for that Goldy, I will be practicing tomorrow, I am determined to get the hang of it. I like the 2nd example, she made it look so easy!! If you see any low flying pliers tomorrow, you'll know I am still having trouble, hee hee!!

              I am left handed and always have trouble following instructions. Even after years of fiddling about with wire wrapping and making loops, mine are never as neat as everyone else's! Don't worry about getting them perfect, just practice with some craft wire until you feel more confident - you will soon find your own method that feels comfortable for you.

                Didn't realise it was yours. I chose it because it was clear and to the point no fussy messing about.
                The first one Kitty looked at was a very strange way of doing it.

                  It's like a lot of things in life it's so easy when you know how. I got through a couple of meters of various thickness copper wire till I was happy with the result, now I dont even give it a second thought

                    Ooh that is a good vid by BeadsbyLili, you make it look so easy I'll give that a go though, as haven't tried them up until now, but my loops are getting a lot better

                        I've been making jewellery for nearly 3 years now and I still can't do decent wrapped loops.

                        Have to say my last effort wasn't too bad though - was it Gill?

                            I like wrapped beads to look perfect and tidy but is it ok for them to look a little 'artistic' and not quite perfect!! Some of my headpins are so hard to manipulate or the plate chips if they are manipulated too much!

                              While you are practising it is easier to use craft wire on the reel. Thread the bead into the wire make an eyepin on the end and then go back above the bead, make the top loop and then hold the coil to wind the wrap.
                              Once you have that mastered you can then do the same but with a headpin length of wire.
