Slide your beads onto your headpins
Slide the discs on behind the beads.
Make sure you're putting them through the right holes and the discs are facing the right way.
Step 7: Hold one of the discs with your non-dominant hand while grabbing the headpin wire with the other.
Step 8: Make a tiny wrapped loop behind your disc to secure your bead.
1. Use your round-nosed pliers to bend the wire into a tiny loop, removing and repositioning them as needed.
2. Grap the loop with your chain-nosed pliers and wrap the wire tail around the bottom of the loop 2 or 3 times.
3. Flush cut the wire and tuck it down close to the wrap with your chain-nosed or (my personal favourite) the round part of your crimping pliers.
The discs with the beads secured to them should look something like this at the back.
