Wire is a very versatile element, which is easy to apply to all kinds of designs. By working with loops, charm bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings can easily be made. The use of chain-nose and/or round-nose pliers and wire or pins is needed in order to create loops or spirals.

  2. Make the loop.
  3. Cut off excess head pin material with a side cutter.
  4. Attach the newly formed loop to another loop or any other findings such as earring loops
