1. Using a piece of 18 or 20 gauge beading wire, cut a piece approximately 2.5 inches in length. Using your flat nose plier make a right angle bend in the center of the wire. Then slide the briolette onto the wire up to the bend. Then move each side of the wire over the bead until they cross over each other. With your finger push the wires up close to the bead.

2. The top wire will be formed into a simple loop and the bottom wire will be the one used to wrap. With your chain nose plier, take the top wire and bend it straight up to the top of the briolette. Then take the bottom wire and make a bend so that it is pointing to the side of the briolette. Then use the chain nose plier to grasp both pliers right below were they cross. Use another plier to wrap the bottom wire three times around the top wire, as demonstrated in the video. Then cut the remaining bottom wire and tuck in the tail.

3. Now, you will make a simple loop with the top wire. First bend the top wire into a right angle at the top of the wrap, trim wire to about 1/8 of an inch above the wire wrap. Then using the end of your round nose plier, grab the end of the top wire and roll it until a simple loop is made.
