    Use the head pin and place through the leaf bead hole half way and twist. Wrap the wires around each other a few times then make an eye loop on one end. (See below on how to make an eye loop.) Then cut the second wire with the flush cutters.

    To make an eye loop: (a 3-in-1 tool really helps with this)
    1.Bend one wire 90 degrees towards yourself with the chain nose pliers.
    2. Next, using your round nose pliers begin making a loop by rolling your hand away from your body. (Don’t try to make the entire loop in one movement.) Roll your hand 1/4 turn counterclockwise.
    3. Without removing pliers from loop, open pliers blade slightly and pivot pliers back toward your body clockwise about 1/4 turn.
    4. Close pliers onto the wire and roll the loop until it comes around, next to the 90-degree bend.
