How to Wire Wrap a Briolette Drop


Use Silver Jewelry Wire to wire wrap a drop by following these simple steps.

Here's What You'll Need:

  • Silver Wire
  • Briolettes
  • Chain Nose Pliers
  • Round Nose Plier
  • Wire Cutters 


Step 1

  • Cut a piece of silver wire 3 inches long.
  • Make a 90 degree bend in the middle of the wire.
  • Slide the drop onto the wire.

Step 2

  • Use your pliers to create a sharp bend in the wire at one corner of the drop.
  • Adjust the space above the drop to leave enough room for it to swing freely.

Step 3

  • Use your chain nose pliers to bend the longer wire where the wires cross. It should point straight up.
  • Bend the short wire sharply. It should lay horizontal, forming a right angle with the longer wire.
  • Hold the crossed wires still with the pliers and wrap the shorter wire around the long wire 2 or 3 times.

Step 4

  • Clip the excess wire close to the coil.
  • Press the tip flush with a chain nose pliers.
