It's been a minute since I added to my Jewelry-making for Beginners series. As I was working on another project (stay tuned for that reveal!), I realized that I've never shared the basics of wrapping a top-drilled teardrop bead, otherwise known as a briolette.
The tools, materials, and steps are pretty simple.
From there, you're basically going to create a wrapped loop. Start by bending the wire horizontally just above where you wrapped the tail.
