Designer Tips

  • Start with plenty of 26-gauge wire, and anchor wire to one side of arc connector. Add 4mm beads and extra lashes between each bead. Finish off the end with additional anchor lashing. Tighten anchor lashes with pliers.
  • With 22-gauge wire, create a wrapped loop beaded connector to attach crescent link to chain. Be careful when tucking in the wire tails, as the 2mm beads are easy to accidentally crush with pliers.
  • Divide chain in half and attach clasp with medium jump ring. Attach a larger jump ring on other half of chain, to hook the clasp into.

New to jewelry making or wire lashing?

  • For instructions on making wrapped loops, and best way to open and close jump rings, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
  • See step-by-step instructions (with photos!) in our lashed earrings blog article.
