This jewelry making lesson shows how to make a hook for use of a bracelet.
· 1mm copper wire
· Wire Cutter
· Flat nose pliers
· Round nose pliers
Cut a 20cm length of 1mm copper wire. Bend it to 90 degree at the centre of the wire by using a pliers that press the wires to the right.
Place the round nose pliers at the place where the curve of the loop begins. Bend the wire from the right (step 1) upward around the round nose to slowly form a loop.
Once the loop is formed, use your left hand to hold the wires and position it at 90 degree against the other wires.
Pull the wire and wrap it around the other wires.
Make approximately 3 wraps and cut off excess wires.
Place a flat nose pliers right after the wrap as shown in picture. Bend the wire slightly in preparation to form a curve.
Move your pliers up and use it to help shape the curve.
Bend the wire more at approximately 0.5 cm above the wrap (see arrow). Using the other hand, pull the edge of the wire around the round nose pliers to form a nice curve.
Place the round nose pliers approximately at 10mm from the curve and bend the wire upward.
Use the flat nose pliers to press the wires to help close the gap.
Leave about 3mm and cut off excess wires.
