-Silver-plated Memory Wire
Next, take the round-nose pliers and make a small loop in one end of the wire, and thread your beads on. I find that holding the wire about 1 inch from the end with the needle nose pliers give you a better grip and makes the loop easier to make. Whatever method works for you. Then, trim the wire leaving about 1/2 inch on the end for making a loop to put the ring on. (This is where the needle-nose pliers REALLY help with grip.) Use the needle-nose pliers to hold onto the intial loop you made first. Make a loop on the end a little larger than the other. Now use the needle-nose pliers to twist the loop you just made open just enough to put the ring on.
(Please excuse the dry hands- they’re really bad when I’m preggo)
Finally, use the needle-nose pliers again to twist the loop back closed, and Ta-Da your done!
