1)You will need a bead, a long head pin (thick or thin), some round nose, flat nose and cutter pliers
2)Thread the bead onto the headpin and grip it with the round nose pliers a third of the way up the shaft
3)Bend the headpin to a 90 degree angle over the round nose pliers
4)Turn the piers up..
5)…and flip the pin back over the top of the pliers..
6)…bend all the way around to form the loop
7/8) Grip the loop with one pair of pliers and wrap the end of the pin with the other pliers. You will be able to use your finger for thin headpins but will need to use pliers to twist for thicker headpins like the one shown here.
9/10) Snip the end, tuck it in and tidy up by squeezing with flat nose pliers
11) A fantastic wrapped loop headpin!
