Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? making my own clasp. I wasn't sure if you could hammer craft wire or not, so I tried it out with silver wire. turned out great, though I feel silly mixing the two in the same project. What advice would you give someone starting this project? use beads you love to practice, practice, practice

Q&A with bitterpurl

flora meeker asked:
how is the clasp figure eight put together without pulling apart?
bitterpurl answered:
I hammered the figure 8 and the s clasp so they hardened
flora meeker asked:
oh.... is a ring twisted into shape .. is that it?
bitterpurl answered:
For the figure 8 I took a piece of wire and made loops at opposite ends then hammered the piece.
BeadyBabe asked:

thank you! the browner ones are Dalmatian Jasper. the pink ones are Rhodochrosite Nuggets and Rhodonite Rondelles
