Instructions

Finished Size: 20 1/2"

Step 1: Use 36" of wire to form a double wire wrapped loop on one end of the wire. Make a 90° bend just above the wire wrap. Place the marker against the 90° bend and wrap the wire around the marker three times. Remove the marker. Use the tail end of the wire to wrap around all three marker-size loops of wire, beginning at the 90° bend and ending half-way around the loops. Trim the remaining wire.

Step 2: Wrap one end of 24" of wire around the last four wraps of the previous wire, going in the opposite direction as the previous wrap. Wrap back in the first direction again, wrapping over the last four wraps of the new wire. Continue to wrap around the three marker-size loops of wire until you reach the 90° bend. Wrap the tail wire around the original wraps of the wrapped loop. Trim excess wire. Set aside.

Step 3: Wrap the center of 36" of wire around Round Nose Pliers twice. Wrap one end of the wires around the other end four times. Bend one wire 90° from the wrapped wire. Bend the other wire 90° in the opposite direction from the wrapped wire. *Use Flat Nose Pliers to hold the wire 5/8" from the 90° bend and bend the wire 180° back onto itself. Use the tail end of the wire to wrap around the folded length of wire back toward the 180° bend. Loosely wrap the wire back toward the 90° bend. Repeat from * using the other wire. Wrap 1 wire end down around the original wrapped loop. Repeat with the other wire end. Trim wire ends. Set aside.



Step 4: Use 2" of wire to from a wrapped loop that attaches to the wrapped loop on the ring half of the toggle clasp formed in Step 2. String 1 snake bead and form a wrapped loop.

Step 5: Use 2" of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wrapped loop. String 1 milky green wavy disc and form a wrapped loop.

Step 6: Repeat Step 5 seven times.



Step 7: Use 2" of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wrapped loop. String 1 snake bead and form a wrapped loop.

Step 8: Use 2 1/2" of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wrapped loop. String 1 chrysoprase slab and form a wrapped loop.

Step 9: Repeat Steps 7 and 8 four times. Repeat Step 7. Repeat Step 5 eight times.



Step 10: Use 2" of wire to form a wrapped loop that attaches to the previous wrapped loop. String 1 snake bead and form a wrapped loop that attaches to the wrapped loop on the bar half of the clasp formed in Step 3.
