  1. Cut the wire to the wanted size. I cut mine to the size of a credit card's length + half a centimeter (because after we will finish it'll get shorter)
  2. Cut the copper as much as possible so there will be as little copper visible as possible. We only want to see the insulate, not the copper.
  3. Bend about a quarter of a centimeter from the edge with the plier so the ends of the wire will be bent plastic.
  4. Press the bent wire with the plier (it's advised to cover the wire with paper/cloth when doing so, since we don't want to expose the copper), so it'll will stick as close to the other part of the wire as possible (Again, just the edges).
  5. Do the previous step again for the other end.
  6. Voila, hopefully you got the same resultls shown in the first picture.
