1 roll 24 gauge wire – gun metal

Seed beads

Small lattice spacers

2.5mm gold spacer balls

TOOLS

Round nose pliers

Chain nose pliers

Wire cutters

Length of finished piece: 45-50cm

STEP ONE

Prepare 16 gauge wire by cutting 1 x 60cm (inner ring), 1 x 70cm (outer ring), 1 x 80cm (inner frame).

STEP TWO

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.
