On the bail part when I cut the wire does it just sit there or do I wrap it around to? I may have missed where you stated how to cut that wire, I'm not sure. I am new to wire jewelry making. Thanks

There are 2 wire ends to consider. The first is described in step 7, this wire is cut and then hidden inside the wrap, whilst being held securely. The second is detailed in steps 8 through to 10, this is used to create the wrap before being cut and tucked away.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions :)

Tighten up your wrap wire so the wires can't move.

Hi Sandy, sorry for the delay in replying, I have only just seen your comment. Are you using 18 gauge wire? It is important to use the correct gauge, 18 will hold it's shape much better than thinner gauges.

Also it is important to wrap the bail together tightly, if the wrap is too loose, the wire will be able to move and work themselves loose.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions :)

Just wanted to say thank you for this tutorial!! Have not tried it yet, but looks rather simple with practice of course. Have been searching for something just like this for a very long time. Thanks again.

I am also looking for a way to make a neck wire,,,I don't have a neck mandrel and was wondering if you could tell me an inexpensive way to make one. Thanks... I love trying new wire wrapping methods. Dabble a bit on my own
