  • Instructions
  • Supplies

The wrapped loop is a staple of wire working. It is useful to finish earrings, make links for a chain, or dangle a pendant from a necklace. In this example we will demonstrate how to make a link for a bracelet like the Swarovski Bracelet with Sterling Silver Cross found in our ideas section. To make a wrapped loop you will need wire cutters, round nose pliers and chain nose pliers.
