Basic Wire Loop

Step 1

Using a piece of wire 1-2" long, grip the wire about 1/2" in from the end with the tip of the round nose pliers. Make a 90 degree bend in the wire by pushing the end opposite of the 1/2" piece down.

 

Step 2

Using an underhand grip (with you palm facing up), hold the end of your bent wire in the round nose pliers, about 1/2" down from the tip of the pliers.

 

Step 3

Roll the end of the wire towards the bend in the wire so that they meet.

An alternative is to follow the Wire Wrap Technique up to Step 5.
