A.
Using a wire jig can help you make a consistent repeatable pattern. It is also important to start with the same length of wire. To create consistent wire-wrapped loops, or wire-wrapped shapes made using pliers, mark a spot on the jaw of your round-nose pliers and use it as your guide every time. A permanent marker works great, and it eventually wears off of the metal.
