How to Make a Wrapped Loop
The Wrapped Loop is a staple of wire working. It is useful to finish earrings, make links for a chain, or dangle a pendant from a necklace. In this example we will demonstrate how to make a link for a bracelet like the Swarovski Bracelet with Sterling Silver Cross found in our ideas section. To make a wrapped loop you will need wire cutters, round nose pliers and chain nose pliers.
Make a 90-degree bend about an eighth of an inch above your bead.
Grip your head pin at the 90-degree bend with your round nose pliers. You will want the pliers facing vertically so that one barrel of the pliers is above the wire and the other barrel is below the wire.
