2.2m approximately 16 gauge wire – gun metal
1 roll 24 gauge wire – gun metal
Fresh water pearls
Small lattice spacers
2.5mm gold spacer balls
5mm spacer balls
Round nose pliers
Chain nose pliers
Length of finished piece: 45-50cm
Prepare 16 gauge wire by cutting 1 x 60cm (inner ring), 1 x 70cm (outer ring), 1 x 80cm (inner frame).
To make the ‘Eye’ of the clasp: Using the 80cm piece of 16 gauge wire, straighten it. Use this piece to make both ends of the clasp and the inner framework. Using the widest end of round nose pliers, grasp one end of the wire 5cm from the top and bend it all the way around until the wire has crossed itself. See Diagram 1. Hold the inside of the loop at the intersection of the wires and pull both wires down and out slightly so that the wires sit parallel to one another. This forms the eye of the clasp.
