How to use eye pin findings:
Eye pins are a great time saver when it comes to joining your jewelry pieces together, because they already have a loop at one end. You can easily manipulate them to create connecting bead links pretty quickly. You can buy eye pins in a number of colors and lengths, depending on the look you want to create.
Making links with eye pins:
Thread your bead onto the eye pin so that it rests gently at the eye of the pin.
Make sure there is enough wire above the bead to create a loop – you might need to trim the end of the eye pin with wire cutters if it’s still a little too long with your bead threaded onto it. Try to leave about 1 cm (approx. half an inch).
Take your round-nosed pliers and bend the wire at a right angle, just above the bead.
Begin to rotate your pliers, bending the wire as you go, creating a loop.
Now you can easily attach jump rings to the loops you’ve created, to add more beads or charms to your links.
(A jump ring is a wire ring made by bringing the two ends together without soldering or welding.)
