WRAPPED LOOP INSTRUCTIONS~
(FROM BEAD & BUTTON)
With the tip of the needle nose pliers, grasp the wire directly above the bead. Bend the wire (above the wires) into a right angle. Using round nose pliers, position the jaws vertically in the bend. Bring the wire over the top jaw of roundnose pliers. Keep the jaws vertical and reposition the pliers so the lower jaw fits snugly in the loop. Curve the wire downward around the bottom of the roundnose pliers. This is the first half of a wrapped loop. Position the jaws of your needle-nose pliers across the loop. Wrap the wire around the wire stem, covering the stem between the loop and the bead. Trim the excess wire and gently press the cut end close enough to the wraps with the needle-nose pliers.
