The loop size will depend on how much wire you leave past the end of your beads, and around which part of your pliers you bend the loop. A good loop size is usually about 1/3 of the way from the tip of your pliers, with about 8mm of wire.
Use round needle-nose pliers.
If using an eye pin, decide which way you want the loop to go - the same direction as the premade loop on the other end, or 90º off. Keep this direction in mind as you bend the rest of the wire.
Cut off any excess wire (we suggest retaining 8mm above the top of your beads).
Grip the pin just above the top bead (at the arrow above), and bend the wire sharply toward you.
Grasp the tip of the wire with pliers, and bend smoothly away from you, around the pliers.
