How to make a briolette wrap


There are several ways to make a briolette wrap. You can use this technique for briolette beads, teardrop beads, or any top drilled beads. Use this technique to wrap crystal hearts and teardrop beads.

Practice with an inexpensive 24g wire, if it is your first attempt. It will take some practice to make a well formed wrap. Higher gauge wires like 22g, 24g and 26g are used for briolette wraps

What you need
* 22g, 24g or 26g wire
* A top drilled bead
* Round nose pliers
* Chain or flat nose pliers
* Wire cutters
Step 1
Cut a 3 to 4 inch length of wire. Grip the middle of the length of wire with your chain nose pliers. If you want to use a small bead, you should use the tip of your pliers. When using a medium sized bead, you should use the middle part of the pliers as shown in the graphic. For a large bead, use the inner most part of the prong to create a large enough space for the bead.
Step 2
Slide your bead onto the wire. You might have to widen the angle of the folded wire to slide the bead on. Try not to force the bead onto the folded wire, especially if you’re working with crystal beads because they chip and break easily.
Step 3
Take both sides of the wire and cross them diagonally over the top of the bead.
Step 4
Cut off one side of the wire 34mm
from where the wire crosses the other one.
Step 5
Take your chain nose pliers and bend both sides of the wire so that they are exactly vertical above the middle of the bead.
