If you’ve been watching my videos for any time now you know that I love the versatility and control we get when we make our own jewelry components. It can be so frustrating and annoying to finish off a project and then find that we don’t have a fitting clasp for it.
In today’s video I’ll show you a quick and easy way to make a simple hook and loop for a necklace closure. If you modify the hook section so it’s more secure you could use it for a bracelet as well.
I also give you a couple tips for making this closure more decorative and at the same time making the wraps a little easier to manage.
You can make this hook and loop out of any kind of wire you’d like: craft wire, copper wire, sterling silver or silver filled wire. Customize it to suit your project perfectly!
Tools and Materials:
- 2 3-inch pieces 18 gauge wire
- Beadsmith Wire Looper Multi-step Ring Looping Plier 5, 7,10mm (these are the ones I show in the video)
- Flat Nose Pliers
- Flush Cutters (these will cut up to 14 gauge wire)
- Bent Chain Nose Pliers
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
