Video tutorial: How to wrap a briolette

In the first of a series of video tutorials we’ll be sharing on the blog, Jessica Rose takes a look at how to use briolette beads.

How to Wrap a Briolette

Briolettes are…

1. Usually faceted (meaning they have lots of angles in them which make them sparkle)

2. Top drilled (meaning the whole is at the top of the bead instead of in the middle)

3. They are usually teardrop shaped (meaning they look lovely in jewellery and particularly for earrings)

4. Gorgeous 🙂 

Wrapping them is an essential skill that allows you to include them in your makes.

Which is why we have a great video for you, by tutor and founder of the London Jewellery School Jessica Rose:
