How to create a wrapped loop:
To begin, we will string a bead onto a head pin.
Here we are using a ball-tipped head pin.
To begin, place the 4-in-1 tool on top of the bead,
holding on to pin. Bend the wire.
This will create a 90-degree angle.
This will also leave the appropriate amount of space in between the bend
and the bead in order to wrap.
Grasp the pin above the bend.
So, you can see there is my bend,
and I'm holding on to this long tail.
And wrap the wire around the 4-in-1 tool.
You will need to let go and rotate the pliers to the side
in order to complete the roll around.
You want the wire to end up being perpendicular
to the base wire of which the bead is strung on.
With the tail of the wire, begin to wrap it around the base wire.
This becomes a little tougher as the wire gets shorter.
If you have a pair of chain-nose pliers you can bring those in to help you.
When you have finished wrapping, trim the end.
You have now created a wrapped loop.
