hi this is Alexandra at beadaholique to show how to wire wrap a crystal sphere now for the demonstration here I've got the bermuda blue brand crystal AK type pendant by swarovski which has a nice natural look kind of like the the quartz peers used on this necklace it's the same easy natural technique of of wire wrap and I've done with the light pink vitriol I've done the 24 gauge silver wire with the clear I've done the 8 28 gauge hematite wire and on the blue one I'll use the 22 gauge gold I'm going to cut 12 inches of wire and wrap the top like I would have briolette around the baby clipping the extra create my loop and I'm going to rotate once and twice around finish it over before I go down around the crystal and so here's where you want to go with the shape of the crystal and so tucking tight kind of against the facets just smooth easy loose loops around and sticking with the shape of the piece to get the wire to stay on and not bend and flip off it reinforces itself as you come up and around loop over previous wraps you get a nice hold and once I get to the top just going to coil around a couple times and cook there you go so you can do this with the Swarovski or with natural quartz like I did in this necklace you can find all of these tyrosine pieces at thanks for watching you
