How to wire wrap a marble
Finished wrapped marble
cut two lengths of wire (I used 20 gauge) approx 10 inches long, then bind them together in the center with a smaller gauge wire (mine was 24 gauge)
with your marble in the loop of wire pull the pair of wires apart from each other so that you have wires in the north, south, east and west directions
create your bale loop at the top with two of the wires and wrap them with the other two wires
at this point you can either trim all 4 wires or use one or more of them to create spirals for accents
these are the tools that are used
I had a little trouble getting the remarks lined up to the photos, but I think you should be able to follow.
Happy Marble Wrapping!
