How to make a jewellery connector

Jewellery connectors serve as links in a design. It can be used to attach different components of jewellery pieces. I’ll show you how to make this easy and very useful one. The size of the loops will depend on which part of the round nose pliers you are using. The bottom of the round nose pliers will make a large loop; therefore you’ll end up with a large connector. The tip of your round nose pliers will produce a very small one. It’s best to use the bottom part of your round nose pliers if it’s your first attempt. Use a nonpermanent
marker to make a little mark on the middle of your pliers if you want to make a medium size one. This will help you to create even loops.

What you need
* 18g or 20g wire (at least 10cm)
* Round nose pliers
* Wire or side cutters
Step 1
Grip the end of the wire with your round nose pliers.
Step 2
Wrap the wire around one prong of your round nose pliers till the wire connects to form a loop. Reposition your pliers once. Release the wire from the pliers.
Step 3
Place the wire horizontally so that the loop which looks like a ‘P’ faces downwards. Now grip the wire with your round nose pliers with one prong next to the loop and the other prong above the
Step 4
Wrap the wire around the upper prong in the opposite direction. Reposition your pliers once.
Step 5
Cut of the extra wire where it connects then take your flat or chain nose pliers to press down the end of the wire that you've cut.
