wire wrapping long pieces

I've just started doing wire wrapping projects and I'm having difficulty figuring out how to maneuver the smaller gauge wire around the larger gauge wire or in between the different pieces. How do I work with long pieces of continuous wire without having to start a new piece every few inches?

Off The Reel
by: Rose

I coil lots of wire in doing my pendants, and I use the finer gauge from the reel, not cutting till I am almost finished.

I know sometimes this is not possible, then I finish the first wire and start again with another piece wrapping the same way, but leaving a small tail.

When I have done all my coiling, I go back and gently squeeze the tails on the larger gauge wire, cut close and squeeze again. If done carefully it is barely noticeable.

I do hope this helps...
