Hi, this is Julie with beadaholique.com so these are markers that you'll use to indicate where you want to place your wire to make your loop so you can make a small loop a medium loop and a large loop and I have those examples right here so this is a small loop size here's the medium and here is the large so I'm going to show you how to make the medium size one I've got some 22 gauge craft wire I do recommend using craft wire if you're just new to making loops it's really affordable you get a lot of it so you don't have to worry if you make some mistakes in the beginning we're going to make a wrapped wire loop the medium size and we're going to do that by taking a length of our wire and bending it at a 90 degree angle then we're going to line up the medium groove so the middle one right like that and wrap our wire around the round nose rotate our pliers still keeping in line with that middle groove and pull the wire around to the side so we've got a loop now at this point you could cut it right here where the wires crisscross or you can continue on to make a wrapped wire loop by grabbing the loop with chain nose pliers and using your fingers to wrap that wire around the stem then go ahead and take a pair of cutters snip off the excess and use your chain nose to press in the loose end and there we have that medium loop and it should line up with the other example I made and there we go and these are wolf tools groovy looping pliers available at beadaholique you
