Hold the headpin on the mark with your thumb and wrap the wire around the mandrel, and loop it around the glass.
Put it on... cute!
Afterwards, I did think about adding seed beads around the shank and was going to make a second, but I couldn’t find anything that I liked that had a large enough hole… time for more bead shopping! If you do want to use beads, you would need put them on to the wire before sizing your ring on the mandrel.
With bail making pliers wrap a wide loop on one side of the head.
Do the same on the opposite side.
Left as it is, it would make a great connector
Or you could do as I did and make a hook to turn the piece into a clasp.
With both designs, due to the heat needed to make the pins, the wire is quite soft, so it's nice and easy to use. But you may find that you need to harden your work when it's complete!
I hope I've inspired you to get wrapping with those headpins! To get some for yourself, visit Jen or Sue!
