Material and Tools

Step 1

The necklace

Put a T4 on an eye pin. You will need about 8 to 10 mm of wire to twist it around the end of the point, depending on the length of the pin. You can snip off any excess wire as needed. Grasp the edge of the protruding wire between the points of the needle-nosed pliers. Twist it around the points. This will create an eye. Gently bend the eye back around the edge of the T4 so that it is centrally positioned above the hole of the T4.
