6. Using the chain-nose plier, hold loop and wrap the wire several times around until it reaches the base of the bead. Remember to keep the wire at a right angle while wrapping. This will ensure an even coil.

7. Trim excess wire, and tuck the end down with the chain-nose plier. This can be tricky – use the tip of the plier on the tip of the wire and gently press into the direction of the coil.
