Default Teeny tiny soft glass loops

Or soft glass loops of any size- in all honesty. I'm making little tiny off-mandrel rods, but I can't make decent loops to save my life, any advice?

Thanks
Charli

Have you tried attaching an on mandrel small bead to your off mandrel work and then annealing it with the bead mandrel still attached?

My other thought is chain nose pliers.

Make a simple large lentil, and then make loops all the way around to practice.
