Note: The sheet metal and wire wraps on the earrings will not be soldered. The wraps need to be tight on the earrings as heat from soldering will soften the metal of the hoop and the earring could then easily bend out of shape during use.
Hook the loop on the base to the right of center. Hold the loop in place on the base with flat or chain nose pliers. Wrap the scrap to the left, making sure that it does not overlap itself much, if at all.
If using longer, straighter strips: Lay a strip diagonally across the center of the section to be wrapped on the base and wrap to either side. Using pliers will aid in making a tighter wrap.
