Head Pins

Load your head pin.

Using your round nose pliers measure off a short distance away from your charm, on your head pin, to accommodate a loop.

The round nose pliers make the nice round shape of the loop that you're looking for.

The wire that's left gets twisted around the pin a couple times.

You can use your flat nose pliers to hold the loop while you do this.

Use your cutters to nip the excess wire off.

Use your flat nose pliers to secure the twisted end.

This is the finished charm for stringing.

I'm learning to do this myself and I'm showing you how it's going for me. If anyone whats to suggest a good tutorial somewhere else let us all know!!!
