How to Attach a Wrapped Wire Loop to Another Jewelry Component (Video)

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.

    Great tutorial! Do you use the same markings on the pliers to make all your loops? How do you measure the markings?

  • Thank you, Karen! I usually use the same Sharpie mark on the pliers for all the loops within a project – it adds an extra impression of quality when all loops are a uniform size. I’m not sure what your question is asking about measuring the markings – do I measure where to put the mark on my pliers? I don’t really measure where to put the mark – I just sort of decide whether I’ll want a small, medium, or large loop and make my mark on an appropriate spot on the pliers. 🙂
