How do I create a basic (simple) loop

Basic loop - stage 1

1: Grasp the end of the wire in round-nose pliers so you can just see the tip of the wire.



Basic loop - stage 2



2: Rotate the pliers fully until you have a complete loop.

3:  Pull the pliers out and and re-insert the tip of the pliers to grasp the wire directly across from the opening of the loop.  Make a sharp 45 degree bend across from the opening making sure that the loop over the length of the wire like a lollipop.
