Here are the supplies that you will need for making these copper wire wrapped beads.
Copper wire, I used 20 gauge.
Wood dowel, knitting needle
Needle nose pliers
Cut your wire to about 20 inches in length.
Now take your dowel and start to wrap your wire around the dowel a few times. Now use your pliers and smush the end now onto the dowel.
Continue to wrap your copper wire around the dowel on top of the wire, around and around to form your wire wrapped bead. Now use your pliers and smush the wire down into the wire bead, so it will not catch onto anything.
Gently pull off the dowel. Now you can add your patina then tumble to work harden and polish.
You can find me at these linky parties.
