Making Wire Jewelry with Rena
video by Rena Klingenberg.
Here’s how to connect a wrapped loop directly to another component – without using jump rings.
For this practice session, you’ll need:
- A piece of wire that’s 3 to 4 inches (7.62 to 10.16 cm) long. In this video I’m using 20-gauge round soft copper wire.
- A jewelry component to connect to your wrapped wire loop. This component should have a closed loop that your wire will fit through. (My component in this video is one end of a toggle clasp – see photo below.)
- Round nose pliers.
- Chain nose pliers.
- Wire cutter.
