Making Eye Loops Jewelry Making Skill

The next looping technique or skill we will discuss is how to make eye loops.  With this technique an eye loop is made by first making a "P" loop and then modifying it with your round nose pliers.  Eye loops are very popular because the loop is centered on the wire leading to the loop.  Aesthetically this is more pleasing than a "P" loop for most jewelry applications.  Making an eye loop jewelry making technique

To make an eye loop, grasp your "P" loop with the tips of your round nose pliers as shown at left then twist your pliers while Making an Eye Loop Jewelry Making Techniqueholding the wire as shown  at right. 

Frequently you will find that making an eye loop using this technique will cause the loop to open up slightly.  This is normal.  To close any gap that opens, use your bent closing pliers and gently squeeze the eye loop so that the gap is closed. 

You can view more pictures on how to make an eye loop here.

In the following web pages we will discuss making opened and wrapped loops.  You will notice that an open loop looks identical to an eye loop and this technique can be used as an alternative way to make an eye loop.
