Wrapped Loops

I've been practicing wrapped loops using 6mm copper coloured wire on two of the drops and using a head pin on the silver coloured one.  It took me a while to understand the technique but once understood it is a satisfying way of turning a gemstone/bead into a wearable piece of jewellery as a pendant or as a charm.

I harnessed the technique by watching lots of YouTube videos and from the book Compendium of Beading Techniques by Jean Power
