MAKING CHANDELIER SHAPES WITH WIRE
Measure and cut four 2" pieces of wire.
STEP B: Place a 2" wire on roundnose pliers with an inch of wire on each side of the pliers and halfway between the tip and base of the pliers.
Holding the pliers in your right hand, cross the wires over each other with left hand to make a loop. Do this on four wires.
STEP D: Gripping the loop you just made in your left hand, place the pliers on the wire to make side loops, holding the pliers with your palm upward to make the loops by rolling the wire to the left. This makes a loop in one smooth movement. This wire should be halfway between the tip and base of the pliers to make the same size loop. The loop size is determined by where it is rolled on the pliers. The tip makes a small loop; the base a large loop. Turn the wire and do the same on the other side. Repeat on the remaining wires. For headpins on the Firecracker Earrings, the wire will be ¼" long, so wrap ¼" from the tip of pliers.
