How to Make Loops for Head or Eye Pins

 

To make nice loops on head or eye pins:

  1. String selected beads on the head or eye pin.
     
  2. Keep about 8mm (1/3") of wire. Cut off any extra.
     
  3. Use round-nose pliers to grasp the wire just above the bead (at the arrow), and bend sharply away from you.
     
  4. Now use small round-nose pliers to grasp the tip of the wire, and bend it smoothly around the pliers down close to the beads.
