The North Star Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
Create a bail using a 5/16" x 3" piece of 24-gauge copper sheet. Cut, file, stamp, punch and ream the holes a bit larger. Use bail-making pliers to bend the stamped piece into a bail (dead center so the holes line up). Patina after bending.
Create gemstone donut chainmaille: Add four 10mm jump rings to each donut. Connect two per side with 8mm jump rings. Use 8mm jump rings on the ends.
The clasp is on the side of the necklace. The pendant is centered when the end links on the antiqued copper chain line up.
