Wire wrapping allows you to bring together beads, jump rings, and other components flawlessly. Cynthia used these pieces together in the pendant she created for this necklace. Using jump rings as the foundation for your wire-wrapping projects is a great way to ease into the technique. For more wire-working inspiration, check out this Artbeads Cafe episode.
