Cut a piece of 12 gauge wire 14" long (35½ cms). Mark the center point with a marker pen, this will help you keep the design symmetrical. Form a large round loop in each end of the wire, using the round nose pliers.
Pro Tip: Forming Round Loops - To ensure that a loop is round, first shape the wire around the round nose pliers, notice how the start of the wire is straight, despite shaping it around a curved item. Hold the wire cutters at a 90° angle to the straight part of the wire and snip the end off, this angled end will now close snugly against the straight wire, giving you a perfectly round loop.
