Take the memory wire ring and string the
seed beads along the whole length leaving about 3/8" at the end. Use the
chain nose pliers to grasp the end of the wire. Carefully bend the end
of the wire inwards into a small loop to hold the beads in place. The
memory wire is very strong so you may need to hold the ring with the
flat nose pliers as you do this.
Pick out the beads you want to have for your
dangles. Take a head pin and place a seed bead on. Next, place your
dangle bead onto the headpin. Next, you will attach the dangle to the
pre-made loop on the memory wire ring using basic wire wrapping.
Grasp the head pin right above the top of
the bead with the chain nose pliers. Bend the wire of the headpin away
from you over the pliers at a 90° angle.
Switch to the round nose pliers. Wrap the
wire up and over the pliers then straight down, resulting in a loop
wrapped around the topside of the pliers. Remove the pliers and
re-insert into the wire so that the loop is now around the bottom side
of the pliers. Push the end of the wire away from you to complete the
Using 2 pliers, grasp the loop and carefully
make a small opening in the loop. Slip the dangle onto the pre-made loop
of the memory wire ring. Close the dingle's loop. Hold the dingle's loop
with the flat nose piers. Use the chain nose pliers to grasp the end of
the wire. Wrap the end of the wire around 2 times, starting close to the
loop. Cut off excess wire with the flush cutters.
Repeat with 2 more beads so that there is at
least 3 bead dangles on the ring.
