This lesson teaches you another way to wrap a donut bead with woven wire. This particular tutorial features a 2 part design. The top part of the wrap can be used independently of the bottom part of the wrap, making this sort of a 2 in 1 tutorials.
Although this lesson only teaches the basic version of this design (as shown in the first photo) there are numerous way to embellish it. Included at the end of the tutorial are photos of some of the variations I’ve made, along with a few tips for implementing them.
