Today’s tutorials are part two of creating wire beads. Creating your own wire beads is fun and easy- even addicting! Yesterday’s tutorials featured wire beads that had a neat and tailored look. Today’s tutorial will show you how to make wire beads that have a more informal style and can be wild and crazy. The neat thing about these informal types of wire beads is there is no wrong way to do them.

I have just come across a web site with a lot of very good wire wrapped jewelry tutorials. The site is called Kreative Vagyok, which means “I am creative” in Hungarian. However, even with the help of Google Translate, I was not able to find the name of the tutorial author(s), so unfortunately I will have to link without naming names. There are many more wire wrapped jewelry tutorials on the site. Those shown below are just a few of my favorites.

Copper and brass wire is economical and easy to shape into spirals. Take an undrilled stone or large glass lampwork beads and turn it into an attractive pendant. You can use 18 gauge to 20 gauge soft metal wire. In these examples, large Millefiori glass undrilled nuggets were used. Cut an 8 to 9 inch section of wire and then form a spiral on both ends using round nose pliers.
