It may seem a little bit basic to many of you, but a lot of people forget to mention the basics so I want to cover as much as I can! I believe learning the basics is essential and allows to move to more advanced techniques. I still remember when I started and I was afraid of everything and ruining things, so I want to help as many beginners as I can. I will make a series of videos about findings, teaching everything I can about using findings with polymer clay :) if you have any questions please let me know and I will make the tutorial for it!

Interesting, I actually have a wayyy different way of doing it. 
I take my nose plier and do a 90 degree angle first and then make the eye in the opposite direction. I find it looks more like the ones you buy that way. 

See step 2 to 5 in my super old tutorial:

I tried to do that, but for some reason it's more difficult for me to measure how long I should cut the wire, and I prefer it quite short and close to the charm :lol:
yeah, I do it by estimating for sure and if it's too long I end up cutting it twice :)
