    Gather up a wire cutter, round nose pliers, chain nose pliers and a marker and paper to help measure and keep the loops consistent in size.
    Begin with a bunch of head pins. Put a mermaid glass bead onto a head pin. Use the pliers to bend the wire into a loop above the bead. Cut of the wire where it crosses over. Measure the cut piece on the paper. Use this measurement to cut the head pins to size.
