As a wire wrapper, I'm constantly looking for ways to make the wrap better, easier, and more beautiful. I think we've all tried using a braid to wrap stones but it's not always the most stable. I have really long hair and so I've done a lot of braid research - and it suddenly occurred to me to try to adapt a 4-strand braid for wire! After some experimentation I've pretty well perfected it - I can wrap the slipperiest stones in about six minutes! This technique gives you a solid foundation and allows for infinite diversions from the main steps to create a design that's uniquely yours. The brown beach glass shown in the promo photos is the exact one covered within the steps. I also include suggestions for several variations on the braid and how it can be applied in different ways. Hope you enjoy making these as much as I enjoyed putting these instructions together for you. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY To complete this tutorial you should have basic knowledge of wire tools. I'll show you the rest!
