I think I got it..No I KNOW I got it!!
I shared my wishlist with my sister before Christmas, and she got me the one step looper pliers I had on my list.
After a few tries I got the hang of it.
I used several of the gold tone eye pins to practice. I don’t feel I wasted them becouse I was practacing, don’t like gold as much as silver, and they should be long enough to cut off one of the ends and one or two beads on them.
