This is a tutorial is for anyone out there just getting started with wire. Have you ever wondered how to create a one-of-a-kind clasp? This post will help you create a clasp that can be used in your next bracelet or necklace design. All you need is a length of 16-gauge wire and your usual arsenal of tools! Let’s get started……
I hope this quick tutorial is helpful. Let me reiterate one of the final tips that I mention - using a tumbler. My tumbler has to be my absolute favorite “tool” when working with wire. If you give your clasps a good tumble (an hour or so), you’ll have a nice and sturdy clasp to be proud of. Please send me an email if you need further clarification on any part of this tutorial. I aim to please.
