Step 11: At this point we need to bend the initial loop up as shown in the picture at right. This must be done without distorting the rest of the wire component. The best way to accomplish this is to use nylon jaw pliers, or bent chain nose pliers to grasp the clubs wire component near the point where the initial wire segment leaves the clubs component. When you look at the picture at right please note that most of the wire component is flat against the table, but the initial wire segment is bent 90 degrees away from the table.
Step 12: Again, grasp the clubs component with your nylon jaw pliers or your bent chain nose pliers and hold the shape firmly. Then wrap the initial wire segment around the vertical wire segment about two times. Holding the wire firmly with your pliers while you wrap will preserve the symmetrical shape of the clubs component. If you accidentally hold the wire component loosely, it is likely that wrapping the wire will pull the clubs component out of the symmetrical shape you want. Please see the picture below-left for how this wrap should appear at this point.
Step 13: Using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire. After you cut the excess wire, use your bent chain nose pliers to squeeze and twist the cut end of the wire until it is flat. See the picture below-center.
Step 14: You are now ready to add your bead or
beads. Because this design is larger and bolder than our
regular clubs component, we recommend using larger beads. The
black pearl beads shown below-right are 10mm beads. Even
larger beads can be used with this wire component.
