To make this item you will need a magnifying glass, sterling silver wire (I used 22 gauge but you can use thicker if you have heavier beads), jade, glass and pearl beads, and sterling silver chain. Tools required are a pair of round needle noise pliers, flat pliers and wire snipers.
Step 1: Creating a Link Step 1
Picture 1: Hold the piece of wire near one end with your needle noise pliers.
Picture 2: Then use your fingers to hold the longer end (bottom) of wire and bend it slightly back, then take hold of the short end (top) and bend it around the piers.
Picture 3: Once you have bent the wire around the pliers it will form a loop.
Step 2: Creating a Link Step 2
Use your fingers or the flat pliers to wrap the remaining wire used to form the loop, around the longer piece of wire (pictures 2 & 3). I suggest wrapping 2 to 3 times around for security.
Step 3: Creating a Link Step 3
Step 4: Creating a Link Step 4
If this is your first link then finish the second end just as you did the first end. However if this is a link that needs to be added to chain or other beads then stop once you have made a loop but before you begin wrapping the excess wire.
Step 5: Adding a Link to Chain
Then finish off your link just as you did in previous steps:
1. Wrap exess 2 or 3 times
2. Snip remaining wire
3. Use flat pliers to flatten cut edge
Now just cut your chain whatever length you want and continue to make links adding any bead or chain you like.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Last, remember to measure. Check the length of your necklace making sure it is long enough to be used comfortably.
Best of Luck!
