Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip

I want to wire wrap pearls onto hair grips and have attempted this with 22g wire. However, it snaps and looks too chunky and untidy. Do you have any tips for me please?


Personally, I have used a 26g round, soft wire to execute this type of technique; as it can be worked quite a bit before becoming too hard and snapping. If the item is to be of costume quality, you may even try an inexpensive craft wire.
