Hi guys! This is a tutorial on how to make flower wire wrapped components to form a bracelet. 

Materials:
1 round bead
About 6 - 8 small beads
6" 18ga or 20 ga round wire

Step 1:

Prepare about 4" 18 or 20ga round wires.

Step 2:

Grip the round nosed pliers about 1" from the top of the wire.

Step 3:

Twist the pliers through 90 degrees away from you, creating a right angle.

Step 4:

With your free hand, curve the top piece of wire towards you, shaping it tightly over the top of the pliers.

Step 5:

Keep curving until it crosses the other piece of wire, and remove the round-nosed pliers.

Step 6:

Grip the loop with pliers. Start wrapping the tail around the stem wire very neatly.

Step 7:

Wrap about 5 times, and close together. Snip close to the stem. Cut off excessive wires with cutter.

Step 8:

Thread a round bead into the other end of the wire and pull it towards to wrapped loop.

Step 9:

We are now ready to make a loop at the other end of the bead. Leave about 0.5cm from the bead and twist the pliers through 90 degrees away from you, creating a right angle.

Step 10:

With your free hand, curve the top piece of wire towards you, shaping it tightly over the top of the pliers.

Step 11:

Keep curving until it crosses the other piece of wire, and remove the pliers.

Step 12:

Grip the loop with pliers

Step 13:

Start wrapping the tail around the stem wire very neatly.

Step 14:

Wrap about 3 times. You notice there is some space left. We will complete the wrap to 5 times when we reach last step.

If you are making a plain wrapped loop link here. You may complete the wrap of 5 times to make it identical to the other end of the bead.

Step 15:

Thread about 8 small beads into the wire.

Step 16:

Wrap the small beads around the round bead.

Step 17:

Pull the wire into the hole as shown in picture.

Step 18:

Wrap the wire 2 times.

Step 19:

Cut off excessive wires.

Step 20:

Make as many flower link as neccessary. Link them together using jump ring.

Step 21:

This is a sample completed creation using this technique. Hope you like it!!!

Pretty. I made a ton of flower necklaces years ago. You can make the outer beads even more petal-like by using drop-shaped gems like in this necklace:&nbsp;<a href="http://hungrycatcafejewelry.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/product_full/CJ-RoyalAmethystCitrineNecklace-lg.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://hungrycatcafejewelry.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/product_full/CJ-RoyalAmethystCitrineNecklace-lg.jpg<br> <br> T</a>he drops naturally pull together to be narrower in the center and wider on the outside, like flower petals.<br> <br> If I get a chance, I'll post a photo of what I mean.
Thanks Susan :)
