Simple loops are great for turning any finding into a dangle.

Instructions

String a bead or beads onto a headpin.

Using chain-nose pliers, form a 90-degree bend in the wire, just above the last bead. Trim the wire, leaving a little less than 1/4 inches remaining.

Use a pair of round-nose pliers to grip the end of the wire. Place your thumbnail at the base of the bend for support then rotate the pliers away from you, forming a loop.
