Wire wrapping is a form of jewelry design where metal wire is shaped with pliers to create many interesting designs including bezels, chains, and more. 

Are you trying to learn how to wire wrap jewelry?  I remember trying to teach myself how to wire wrap jewelry.   Armed with my jewelry pliers, some cheap copper practice wire, and a couple of different books on jewelry wire wrapping, I set out to teach myself how to make all those beautiful and unique wire wrap jewelry designs.  It was very frustrating at first, but within a few hours I had produced my very first piece, a wire-wrapped bead pendant!  Woo-hoo...success!
