- TOOL LIST: round nose pliers; flat nose pliers; wire cutter; wire scissors; something round about 18 mm in diameter (a permanent marker, for instance); something thinner than a marker (a pen)
- ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS: One can use any stones at hand, with two holes, either rectangular, or square shapes. If they seem to be heavy, use 3 or 4 of them, not 5. The silver plated wire can be replaced with copper or any craft wire at hand.
