You don't need a lot of equipment to make wire wrapped jewelry—with surprisingly little, even a novice can create a beautiful handcrafted bracelet that's wearable, fashionable, custom-sized, and exactly what you want.
That said, having the necessary tools and materials ready to go when you're ready to go makes it much easier.

It doesn't matter how strong you may be or how great your fine motor skills are—turning a wire loop with your fingers is not an option!
