In this video, we learn how to use a head pin while making earrings. Start off by grabbing a 1" long headpin and feed a bead through it until it reaches the other end of the pin. Now, decide how you want to close the loop. The first way to close it is to make a single loop by using pliers and making a 45 degree bend. Cut off any excess wire with wire cutters. The next way to do this is to wind the excess wire around the base until it comes to the bottom of the bead. This is visually appealing and creates a very secure loop!
