How do I use head pins / eye pins with Holiday Glitz™ beads?
Thread bead onto the head or eye pin. Make sure bead is at the very bottom of the pin, then bend excess wire on top of pin at a right angle. Cut excess wire down to ¼ - ½” (depending on desired loop size).
Use the round nose pliers to grip the end of the pin and roll it towards the top of the bead, creating a round loop. Snip off any excess wire. You can use your round and flat nose pliers to carefully adjust the loop if needed. TIP: Eye pins are great for making beaded chains and head pins are great for making beaded charms!
