| Step 1 |
Begin by flush cutting the end of a 3-inch piece of wire.
| Step 2 |
To make the small loop of the link, grasp the very end of the wire with the second smallest part of the looping pliers. These looping pliers are able to make 6 different size loops.
| Step 3 |
Rotate the pliers to create a complete loop.
| Step 4 |
Grasp the wire just above the loop with the base of the looping pliers.
| Step 5 |
The wire will be looped around the largest part of the looping pliers.
| Step 6 |
Pull the wire back, down and around the pliers.
| Step 7 |
Reposition your pliers by opening them and pivot your pliers so the bottom tip is now on the side.
| Step 8 |
Continue pulling the wire around the plier to create a completed loop.
| Step 9 |
Remove the s-link from the pliers.
| Step 10 |
Make a flush cut with the wire cutters just below where the wires cross.
| Step 11 |
Your link is now complete.
| Step 12 |
If the loops are slightly open, close them with the chain nose pliers.
| Step 13 |
Congratulations, you have now completed an s-link. Try making several and incorporating them into a necklace or earrings.
