|Many wire-wrapping artists use small strips of masking tape to keep multiple square wires together and in line when forming a wire-wrapped bezel around a cabochon or stone. Typically, the bound square wires will then be wrapped with the flat side of a thinner gauge half-round or square wire near the place where the masking tape is holding the square wires together.|
Large crimps could be better used as a design element in other types of wire-wrapping. Use sterling silver crimps to slip onto a few thin wires, add a few beads to float on the wires, follow with another large crimp and repeat the process as you like. Allow the crimp beads to float also or lightly crimp them in place.
