Step 16 to 3/32" Hand-made Jewelry Wire Finding, Jewelry Making TechniqueAlternative Configuration (Continued):

Step 16:  Using your bent chain nose pliers, grip the wire immediately above the pendant as shown at right.  The purpose of gripping here is to preserve the shape of the wire while you wrap the wire tail around the short vertical wire segment below the circle of wire. 

Step 17:  Wrap the wire tail around 180 degrees.  We are not going to wrap the wire fully around here, just a 180 degree bend as shown below-left. 

Step 18:  Using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire.  After cutting the excess wire, use your bent chain nose pliers to squeeze the cut end of the wire flat. 

Step 19:  Now we need to wrap the beginning wire segment around the wire below the circle.  To begin this, we need to grip the circle of wire with our bent chain nose pliers as shown below-right. 

Step 17 Step 18 Step 19
