Step 14:  With the pendant or gemstone pushed as far to the left as possible in the picture below-left, bend the wire tail up and ultimately across the top of the pendant bead or gemstone as shown.  You can push the wire with your thumb or forefinger. or some my find that pushing with the jaws of your bent chain nose pliers will help.  Try to push the wire so that the initial wire segment and the long wire tail are on the same side of the wire triangles if possible. 

Step 15:  Grasp the wire with your bent chain nose pliers as shown below-center. 

Step 16:  While holding the wire in your pliers, bend the wire tail until it is parallel to the beginning wire segment but pointing in the opposite direction.  See the picture below-right.
