A little clip to demonstrate visually how to loop a jewelry wire finding known as a headpin to make bead drop assemblies that can be used in making beaded earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc.
You'll need some beads and a few head pins a few beads, and a minimum of two hand tools: a looping (rosary) pliers and cutting pliers to try this the way I've shown it. Optionally, though an essential part of any jewelry maker's tool box, needle nose pliers to straighten everything out at the end so that everything will hang right.
Practice makes perfect! With time it will come naturally as your muscle memory takes over.
The same technique can also used on eyepins to make linked chains. Make a bunch and link them together with jump rings.
Sometimes you just need to see it to understand it. I hope this helps you in your jewelry making. Comments welcome. Enjoy
