BeadSmith Big Looper PlierJanuary 16, 2016
I had more fun making looops and experimenting with this looper. It is easy and straight forward. The only negative for me was the width of the grip, I had to pinch and then adjust my grip to finish the loop. I have a 71/2" spread from thumb tip to pinkie tip. I did not have the same problem with the small looper. I ordered both after reading another review....

If you buy no other tool....January 5, 2016
This is the best tool for making loops. I have purchased both the larger and the smaller sizes and I do not know how I survived without them. They make it so much easier to create beautiful and symmetric loops. This tool is a must have for any beadier!

I love this tool. The weekend I received it I went through my bag of beads left over from big projects, some head pins and ear wires and made a dozen pairs of earrings for gift. It makes it so simple! Did I mention, I love this tool?

Better than the small looper toolSeptember 30, 2015
I purchased the small looper tool first. I wasn't impressed with it's ability to create a good loop on 22 or 24 gauge wire. But I did see potential. So, I purchased the large looper. I like this one. It is more consistent using 20 gauge wire but performs okay on 22 gauge wire too. Of course, as stated in the item description it is necessary to manually close the loop.

Big Looper plierFebruary 13, 2015
A great tool. I have discovered that this tool takes practice. The handles are to far apart for my hands and it's a little hard to keep the wire in place which you have to do to make a perfect loop. I wish you could get the bead a little closer to the second loop. Leaves a lot of play. But all in all its a handy tool that I'm sure I will use over and over.

The Beadsmith 1 Step Big Looper PlierFebruary 11, 2015
I bought these to save time making loops, they do not close the loops, so you must do that as a separate step. No real time saving.. also the 3mm loop is Too large for most bracelets. The do cut off the pins to size a big help no more guessing.

easy loops!December 10, 2014
I am using the 1-step Big Looper to make earrings 56 female high school students. What a time saver! Not as professional as wrapping the wires, but so much easier. I will probably buy the small looper also.

One-step LoopersSeptember 17, 2014
I wish there was a way to make loops of different sizes. I still must make adjustments to make the loop smaller. Also one must make sure the front end of the headpin remains up against curved portion of the tool. Other wise you end up with an overly large twisted version of the loop. Not really a timesaver.

Love the LoopersAugust 30, 2014
As with the smaller looper, it takes a big of practice with the loopers to get them to turn out right, but they are so worth it to not have to sweat making loops. I agree with other users that the handles on this one are a bit too far apart to squeeze easily, but it saves me so much stress from trying to make my own loops, that I will not be without either one.

Great concept; too wide for many women's handsJuly 30, 2014
I love the consistency of the loops but have two problems - it is too wide for my hand to grip comfortably and when using sterling wire there is more waste than when making loops the regular way.

Great Looping plierJuly 13, 2014
This looping pliers makes it much easier to make consistent simple loops. The loops are just the right size. The only issue I have with them is I have a small hand and it barely spans the pliers. I have to hold it way up on the handle to fit the wire in and then it is a bit difficult to squeeze it shut so far up. I am learning to adapt to that but it would be much easier for me if they didn't open so wide at the handles.

One Step LooperJuly 9, 2014
I LOVE this tool!I make a lot of earrings, which admittedly don't take much time to make; however, they take even less time with the one step looper. I love the consistently even loops and the fact that there's no more guessing as to exactly where to cut the wire and make that bend that forms the loop! My new favorite tool! The only thing better would be a toold that also makes wrapped loops!

Easy... Wow!!June 27, 2014
When I opened my package from Artbeads, I grabbed these pliers first and glanced over the back of the card. I thought, "OK, it can't be that easy..." and I set them aside until I had time to mess around with them. Later I pulled them out of the package and tried them on some junky wire (just in case). Wow!! It really is easy to make perfectly uniform, professional looking eye pins and links. With very little practice. Yay!! I love these!

Much BetterJune 25, 2014
I bought the first looper and liked it but Stopped using it because the loop was too small. Wahoo...I got this one and it is perfect. I am still only able to use it when the design allows enough exposed wire on the head pin when sometimes that just isn't possible. Still love the tool though!

1 step looper 3mm holeJune 22, 2014
I am sorry i bought this tool. I have watched the video over and over and no matter what i do the tool cuts the wire off before it make an almost full loop. It is worthless to me. The video makes it look so easy.

Pros and Cons, but a keeperJune 13, 2014
Overall, I really like it. If you work it slowly, and give it a nice squeeze at the end, you will get a perfectly shaped loop. It works best with 20 gauge, in my opinion, and is a bit wasteful if you are making links rather than eye pins. Also, I have long fingers and it\'s a bit of a stretch for me to close. The loop is a tad too large for a lot of things, so I\'ll be getting the smaller one as well. I do think it\'s a great tool overall. I will be using it often!
