Very nice! Thanks for all of your hard work! Guess I need to dig out the wire and pliers!

Clean, clear, instructions and a beautiful design too! I would say that you were as meticulous with your tutorial as you are with your wire work!

Thank you so much for taking the time to put this together.

What a nice tutorial! I do have one question - when you say cut your pieces into 15 or 20 inch pieces, will one piece make it all the way around the large loop that you do first and if not, how do you go from one piece to another?

Wow, thank you! Very well done.... I do have the same question as Squid - how do you join the shorter pieces of wire properly?

I'm sorry about that Squid and Sue! I was going to put that part in the tutorial and don't know what happened. YIKES! You add on the wire as you need it. When I run out, I just use my chain nose pliers to firmly push the end of the wire down. I add my next piece of wire and wrap a few rounds and be sure you are wrapping in the same direction as you were with the last piece of wire. You will have an end sticking up on the wire you just added. You will need to use your wire cutters to cut off the end and use your chain nose pliers to firmly press that end down so it meets the other end where your last piece of wire ended. You don't have to use pieces of wire that short. You can use them much longer if you choose. I started using shorter pieces of wire when I first started wire wrapping but now I just use long pieces. If you use longer pieces, you have to be very careful not to over work the wire or it become brittle and may break. I hope this helps. If you want I can take a picture of it later. Kinda like a mini tutorial on how to add on more wire. Thank you for the compliments also.

Jewlie Where do you get your 26 gauge wire copper? Hobby Lobby maybe? I hope so. This is awesome for a tut. I'm going to do it when I can get the copper that will co inside with your directions. Can't wait.

I get my copper wire from Monsterslayer. You may be able to get it from Hobby Lobby too but I'm not sure. We just have a Michaels here. 26 gauge copper is the smallest gauge of copper I've been able to find.

What a great tutorial and what a generous and kind person you are. I didn't think we would ever see a free tutorial again and I have to say that I would have been more than happy to pay for this one.

Thank You xxx

What a wonderful tutorial. I think wire wrapping is beyond but you make it seem possible.
I love your work - I have been wearing my hoops since I received them.

Thanks
