How To: Make an eye pin for jewelry making

Make an eye pin for jewelry making

In this jewelry-making basics tutorial, learn how to make an eye pin. To create an eye pin, you will need wire. Size 24 or 22 gauge wire is the best kind of wire to make an eye pin. The thicker the wire, the more difficult it may be to work with. To begin, straighten out your wire and cut the length you need to make your eye pin. Taking some round nose pliers, you will bend the wire up while rolling it toward yourself. Do not pinch the wire too tightly with the pliers because it can leave permanent marks in the wire. This will create your loop. To straighten it, simply bend it slightly in the opposite direction. This pin can be used for earrings or parts of necklaces.
