The first bead I’ve wire-wrapped:
I’ve watched a few YouTube videos on the subject. The interesting thing about wire-wrapping a bead is that because it’s very easy to secure the wire, it’s also easy to be really creative with the wire.
Working with brass wire is a bit different than the copper; it is, for lack of a better description, “springier.” I’ve learned that some patterns are are better left for copper. Like the one circled in blue:
The long wraps in the pyramid pattern want to spring out of position. So I probably won’t use it with the brass again.
I’m toying with ideas to use this extravagant wrap as a pendant. Stay tuned.
