Wire Wrapping Technique

The Wire Wrapping Technique is one of my favorite techniques. Many of my designs are wire wrapped. It is the art of wrapping beads with jewelry wire and linking them onto other beads or onto to components. This bracelet is a link bracelet. I wire wrapped each bead and connected them to each other. I used an antique gunmetal flexible metal jewelry wire with a 24mm guage to wrap this bracelet. The beads I used in this design are vintage lucite beads from the 1960's and many of my designs are created with these type of beads. To view many of my link bracelets, visit me at Thanks. Cat.
