In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to make an eye pin wire loop.
Eye pins are similar to head pins. As a jewelry maker, you use eye pins for making your own charms & components.
Using a pair of round nose pliers, grab the wire at the very tip. Pay close attention to where you place on barrel – that determines size of loop.
Make sure the tip of the wire is barely sticking out.
Rotate your wrist to form a loop in the wire.
Re-adjust your pliers and bend the base wire as shown
