I am not exactly sure, I have picked up bits and pieces as I go. I do know Magpie Gems has a lot of free information and tutorials on wire-wrapping, the site is ran by Szarka Carter and her husband, her work is beautiful. I would recomend looking on there, she also has tutorials available for free on you tube! I myself am not quite confident enough to attempt to make a tutorial yet! I hope that info helps!
