How to Make a Hook for Bracelet Jewelry Making Tutorial
This tutorial is for beginners. You can put your own finishing touches and shape the wire the way you want the clasp to look like.
Step 1: Cut a 20cm length of 1mm copper wire. Bend it to 90 degrees at the centre of the wire by using pliers then press the wires to the right.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: Once the loop is formed use your left hand to hold the wire and position it at 90 degrees against the other wire.
Step 4: Pull the wire and wrap it around the other wire and make approximately 3 wraps and cut off excess wire.
Step 5: Place a flat nose pliers right after the wrap as shown in picture. Bend the wire slightly in preparation to form a curve then move your pliers up and use it to help shape the curve.
Step 6: Bend the wire more at approximately 0.5 cm above the wrap. Using the other hand, pull the edge of the wire around the round nose pliers to form a nice curve.
Step 7: Place the round nose pliers approximately at 10mm from the curve and bend the wire upward.
Step 8: Use the flat nose pliers to press the wires to help close the gap. Leave about 3mm and cut off excess wire. You’re done!
