Are you a resin jewelry making beginner? Don't mix resin until you read this first! Okay. That sounds a little dramatic, so let me back up a bit. I get a lot of really good questions from aspiring beginner resin jewelry makers and crafters worldwide. Many of those questions involve how to make something. For example, here is a recent question from a Resin Obsession fan: I've got this idea for a resin ring I was hoping you could help me with. I want to do it in multiple colors. I'm not sure exactly what the ring will look like, but how do I make a mold for it? And what kind of resin should I use for the ring? Oh, and by the way, I have never made anything with resin before. Do you have any tips you can share? Thanks in advance for your help. I love the ambition and big picture ideas here. I really do. But unfortunately, this is the proverbial 'train wreck' looking to set up shop in your crafting room. Resin can be such a fussy beast for even the most experienced resin crafters. This person has envisioned a project that would take several days to develop and several more days to finish. (and that's assuming everything goes as well as possible) Put another way - imagine that your cousin has announced that she's cooking the next big holiday meal for your extended family of 23 people. And she has never so much as boiled water for an egg. I think you get my concern here. Let's explore in this book!

In simple terms, wire wrapping is taking wire and wrapping it around itself and/or beads and other components to create jewelry. Wire wrapping can be used to make a loop for joining different components together, such as when creating a wrapped wire loop or wrapping a pendant. Through wire wrapping, you can also secure beads to a form, or even attach non bead items such as wire wrapping rhinestone cup chain onto a bangle.
