How to make a wrapped connection


The following are 2 different ways of making an ‘Eye’ on the end of a wire.  This is a technique that is well worth practicing and getting comfortable with as there are lots of different uses for this. As long as you end up with a loop at the end of your wire, then you’ve succeeded. Don’t get discouraged if you can’t master it at first. It takes a lot of practice to make perfect looking loops.

What you need
* 20g wire, 22g wire or headpin (at least 6cm or longer)
* Round nose pliers
* Chain or flat nose pliers
* Side cutters


Technique 1
Step 1

Slide the bead onto the headpin. Grip the headpin approx. 4mm above the bead with your round nose pliers.
Step 2
Bend the headpin to a 90 degrees angle by moving your pliers away from you. Use your free hand to bend the tail of the headpin around the nose of your pliers to form a complete loop. You might have to reposition your pliers once or twice.
Step 3
If you’re making a wrapped loop on a headpin for a certain project, then this is the place to slide whatever you need onto the loop, or attach it to the chain/link you are working with. I’ve used an earring wire as an example. Read the instructions for the project you are working on to see if you need to slide anything onto the loop.
Step 4
Grip the loop with your flat or chain nose pliers. (I prefer chain nose pliers)
Step 5
Now you can start the wrapping process. Start as close to the loop as possible and avoid leaving spaces. Use your free hand and wrap the wire around the neck of the loop until it touches the bead.
Step 6
Use your wire or side cutters to cut off the excess wire as close to the wrap as possible. Take your flat or chain nose pliers to press down the end of the wire that you've cut.

Well done, your wrapped headpin is now ready to use.
