You can use just about any gauge to make wrapped beads. I use large 16 gauge wire in the photos so that you can see the details of each step large and up close.
The tutorial will cover lots of important details and techniques, such as:
How to get the loops placed exactly where I want them every time.
How to make perfectly round loop.
How to make a secure bead cap.
How to make a double wrapped looped.
How to make incredible wrapped beads with no ends sticking out and using just one piece of wire.
This is an intermediate level tutorial. All the steps are contained within, however some wire experience will help you in handling the wire and getting it to do what you want it to do.
