- Chain nose pliers
- Round nose pliers
- Diagonal cutting pliers
- Eye pins
- Head pins
- Jump rings
How to properly open/close a jump ring:
- You will need two pliers to hold the jump ring.
- Bring one of the pliers towards you to open the jump ring. Do not pull apart.
Making a loop:
About an inch from the bead, make a 90 degree turn with your chain nose pliers. Using your fingers and the round nose pliers, bring the wire up and around one tip of the pliers to make the loop. Then, trim the end of the wire. The loop will look like a head pin.
Most of the time I make the wrapped loop. Follow the same steps I mentioned, but instead of leaving an inch from the bead, leave two inches so you can make the loop and then wrap it.
