How to make wrapped loop

Remember I said in the previous post, I will blog about making wrapped loops?

Today, I am going to do that.

Have a bead, and a headpin. Make sure you have the round nose pliers straight nose pliers and wire cutters.

So let us start.

Put your bead on the headpin.

Hold the headpin with your round nose players just on top of the bead.

You may need to mark the place on the pliers if you are making same size loops for the project in hand, like necklace or earring.

See where the pliers in step 3? It is important to have it there.

Now bend the headpin almost  ninety degrees upwards.

Change the position of the pliers again.Place the pliers on the beded part of the headpin. Now we make a loop by bringing thetop part of the headpin more down. Look the picture below

Make it wrap two times. If neeeded use your straight nose pliers to pull the pin tight so the wraps are very close to the stem. Excess wire from the headpin? Don’t worry. We can use our cutting pliers to snip the excess. Make sure you cut it very close to the stem so nothing will poking when the jewelry is complete.
