Wire wrapping is one of the oldest techniques for making jewelry. ... Using sterling silver, copper, brass or even a combination of all three wires, you can begin to wrap, bend, loop the wire into decorative shape. With this process you can make beautiful earrings, pendants, bracelets and ring. The wonderful thing about Wire Wrapping is that with just a few pairs of pliers and some round, square or half round wire, you can begin creating unique pieces of wire-wrapped jewelry that you can give as gifts, keep for yourself or sell!
Wire wrapping is definitely a form of art. To make the “Hug Ring” , you can choose gold filled wire or sterling silver, 18 gauge wire for a heavier ring or 20 gauge for a lighter ring.
