How To Make… Turn loop

The making of a turn loop can prove to be more difficult in reality than it is in theory. Using a pair of round nose pliers, follow the straightforward steps below to master the turn loop technique, which usually takes a little practice.


1 To control the length of your stem, position the wire on the thick area of the pliers; now bend the wire away from you to make a right angle.

2 Then trim the head pin, leaving approx 1cm distance from the bend. Grip the pin at its end with round nose pliers.

3 Then roll your wrist to make a complete turn. Now you can re-adjust the pin so that the loop sits directly on top of the stem.

4Your loop is complete and ready to attach.
