To make the Wire Loop Beaded Bracelet you'll need end bars that will hold three strands of jewelery. This one comes with the lobster claw clasp attached, 6 jump rings these are 6mm in size. 6 bracelet beads and 15 gem stones or beads. You'll also need beading wire, this is 24 gauge. The tools that you'll need are clippers, Round Nose pliers, and crimped nose pliers. To began you'll need a wire loop, for the size of my gem stones I am only using about 4 inches of wire, if your gem stone or bead is a little bit larger you might want to use 6 inches.
Just take the wire about an inch from the top and make a 90 degree bend. Hold the wire right below the bend and take your round nose pliers and rock it backwards and forwards. This gives you a semi circle in the wire. Now with your hands just bring it around to the front, and now you have a loop. I would recommend while making your final loops, to use your pliers, just bring it around. I am going to go for three loops, just two and now this is three. I go head and bring it around to the front. Now I need my clippers to cut off the excess wire. So it's a little bit poking out so just smash it down with your pliers to make sure it doesn't scratch.
Alright now we have our first wire loop. I am just going to take our gem stone and thread it on through, just like that. Now since this is our first bead we are going to complete the wire looping. About our quarter of an inch above the bead, just bend the wire down. And again we are going to take our Round Nose Pliers and rock it backwards, and rock it forwards to get a semi circle. Bring it around, I am going to wrap it three more times. So it's alright at the end that it gets a little messed up, because you are just going to cut it off any way. Alright, we'll cut off the excess; and we have our first completed bead, perfect.
Now my strands begin and end with these spacer beads. Since that beads even smaller, all we need about two and a half inches of wire. Start the same way a 90 degree bent near the top. Rock it backwards and rock it forwards. Now we have another semi circle just bring it around, wrap it around, we wrap it. Again doing it with the pliers gives you a bit more of a consistent wrap.
Alright I am just going to do about two on this one, since the bead has a larger hole you won't be able to see the wrapping any way. So as long as you've got it to wear out the bead will stay on the bracelet. You are good to go. Just thread the Spacer Bead on to the new wire loop. Again we are going to go just a little bit above the bead, make another 90 degree turn.
Now this is our second bead so it's a little bit different. We still make that semi circle rock it back and rock it forward. Here is our semi circle. We are going to loop it but just once. Now leave it open just a little, so you can attach it to your first bead. So now we have them attached, just to grab it with your round nose pliers. Now that he has a little friend, he is little harder to wrap just go work with it. Again this isn't quite - it's so important how good the wrap end looks, this bead is going to cover it up. So we'll just nip off the excess. We'll smash it down just in case it might poke somebody.
Alright so we have our first two beads of the first strand of our bracelet. Now I've set things up a bit; and I've completed the rest of this strand. So I am just going to thread them together, finish up the wire wrapping. Pliers is here, alright. This one does matter because that will be visible, take a little more time at this one wrap it around just like before. Again the more beads you get on there little harder it is to negotiate around everything. Just smash it, and that's our first strand completed.
Again I've set things up. I've made the previous strands. Now we are going to attach it with jump rings to the end bars. You just need to open it up with your pliers. It's good to have two pliers here. Feed it to the end bar, hold on to it, so it doesn't fall back through. Feed it through the strand that we just made, and then close it back up, here we go. We will repeat that to get them all finished up, and now I am just putting on the last jump ring it's going to close it up. And that completes the Wire Loops Beaded Bracelet.
