Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
January 18, 2010

Question:

Wire wrapping is completely new to me.  I think what I need to know about would be considered wire wrapping.  I am using eye pins.  I have seen that some people take and wrap the wire around itself just below the eye.  Is there an easy way to do this?

Answer:

The best way I can instruct you in making your own eye pins is to direct you to this instructional video. Here Sherrie Lingerfelt shows how to easily make a rosary link using two pair of pliers at the same time. (A rosary link is a combination of two wrapped links, which are the same as wrapped loops or wrapped eyes.) Hope this helps! http://wire-sculpture.com/jewelry-making-blog/201/creating-a-rosary-link/
