Step 1

To begin, anchor the wire to the component with two wraps.

Step 2

String a bead onto the wire.

Step 3

Rest the bead on the surface of the component. Bring the wire over the top of the component.

Step 4

Bring the wire behind the component and pull it up through the middle of the component.

Step 5

Bring the wire over the top of the component.

Step 6

Bring the wire behind the component and pull it up through the middle of the component.

Step 7

String a bead onto the wire.

Step 8

Rest the bead on the surface of the component. Bring the wire over the top of the component.

Step 9

Bring the wire behind the component and pull it up through the middle of the component.

Step 10

Bring the wire over the top of the component. Repeat steps 6 through 10 until the component is completely covered.

Step 11

To finish, anchor the end of the wire by making two wire wraps. Once the wire is anchored, cut the end of the wire with the wire cutters. Congratulations, you have covered the surface of a component!
