I made this wire wrapped pendant with copper wire and a turquoise bead. You can find it on Etsy.

I am sharing how I wire wrapped a flower bead. I started with 3 pieces of 22 gauge wire as the base and coiled 26 gauge around them following a pattern (two wraps around the bottom two wires and two wraps around the top two wires).
Continue coiling until it measures approximately 1.5 inches. Wrap the coiled section around a pencil.
Insert the wires through the flower.
Make a small loop at the end of the wire and coil it.
Repeat the same step with the remaining wires
Bend the bail against the flower
And it is now ready to wear!
