Place your beads on a head pin.
Bend the wire at a right angle at the top of the last bead. Try and make the bend sit right on top of the bead. You shouldn’t be able to move the bead up and down on the wire after the bend is made.
Cut away the excess wire leaving about 3/8″.
Holding the tool in your dominant hand close the round nose plier on the wire at about 1/4″ away from the tip of the plier. This measurement is going to match the diameter of the loop that you are going to make
Using the round nose plier, loop the wire up and over the top of the bead.
