Here's a good one on using crimp beads. Good close-ups.

You can make a lot of the things you'll need from wire. The next few vids show wrapping loops, ear wires, eyepins, spirals and some other things.

This is a good video on using a wig jig. This tool has been around forever and is easily duplicated with some tubing or small bar stock, a piece of wood and a drill. No need to make all those holes to begin with. You could build small one-off tools for specific designs as you need them. I've also seen homemade jigs with patterns jigsawed out of plywood and then fastened to the tool to bend unusual shapes.
