Bend wire around ring mandrel.
Nip each tail to about 3/4inch on each side. Should look like this.
With your round nose pliers make a loop. A good way to do this is pinch lightly and twist the wrist with the pliers while holding the ring steady in the non-dominant hand.
Gently pinch on both sides. This aligns the wire so that the loops are straight, and so no toes go scratched by loose ends sticking out. . . COMPLETE! Th next step is optional. Peace out. ✌
If you want a bit of an extra design element, use your chain nose pliers to flatten the edges of the loops. If you used hard wire, prepare to break a sweat. 😜
A few extra wraps around the mandrel looks like this. Not recommended for toe rings as they are bulky and don't flex, but great for fingers!
