My sister in law taught me to turn a loop in the end of a wire headpin, and so started me on my nefarious career of making earrings and suchlike from beads of various persuasions.
I have taught a number of other people how to turn the loops to make earrings and bracelets and whatnot, and had a request that I make a video showing how I do it.
Here, courtesy of daughter C loaning me her video camera, is me demonstrating how to turn that simple loop.
OK, moving right along, I have two more videos for you, if you have the interest, and the patience to watch them. This next one is me making the dangles for a pair of earrings.
and then me making a second pair of earrings all the way through.
So sorry about the telephone ringing. I'll have to try doing it over again.
