Hi this is Megan with Beadaholique.com and I'm going to show you how to make a simple wire loop you would use this when you are putting a bead on a head pin or a eye pin if you need to have a way to hang a bead from your piece of jewelry. So the first thing you're going to do is place your bead on your head pin or your eye pin Then you going to take a pair of chain nose pliers grab the wire right above the bead give yourself a little bit of room to bend and bend at about forty five degree angle you want that bend to be pretty much right above the bead.You don't need much of a space there then take round nose pliers grab on to the wire just above the bend pull the wire over the top of the round nose pliers adjust rotate the pliers around and complete the loop by pulling the rest of the wire tail down then you're going to flip that over take your flush cutters and trim the excess then you can just take your chain nose pliers and straighten out your loop you would open and close this just like a jump ring just take the open end and pull it away hang it on something and push it back closed.
