Nickel Silver Wire Round 14Ga (10-Ft) - It has been some time on account that i’ve spent this a good deal time with my torch. I maintain it in my basement paintings room, in which i additionally do my soldering and maintain my drill press for drilling rocks. Nowadays i picked up a few fired copper clay pieces that were sitting in this workbench considering that early remaining fall. Abandoned earring additives. Perhaps i though they had been too thin? Maybe the rest of that kiln batch had now not sintered well? I couldn’t surely don't forget how i had deliberate to use them. Possibly they just appeared too simple. I determined to take them upstairs to my studio to peer what could happen if i hammered them. Would they harden, fall apart, or crack? ?nicely, they hardened quite properly. And as i set them down on my bench, next to the rest of my work from nowadays, darned if they didn’t end up some other concept for a clasp!.

To this point so good, however i wished a hook for the opposite 1/2 of this clasp, and that is wherein the 14 gauge cord felt much less than friendly. In trying to make a easy cord-wrapped loop with thicker cord, my pliers felt foreign. I tried to accurate  the curves i didn’t like, and the hook looked worse! I'm able to make these wrapped loops in my sleep with 20 gauge wire, however i remember how frustrating it was to examine at the beginning. What is easy now, i had to do many times, before it became that way. So i saved attempting, making what gave the look of terrific-sized french ear wires, till i concept to try fusing the cease loop instead of wrapping it.

I connected one to a percent oval to apply as a clasp. Instead of fuse the soar ring in location, after firing the % clasp, i tried cutting a small wedge out of the leather tough % oval,  located the jump ring on, and then moistened the wedge’s edges and slid  it again into place. This is a way from kate mckinnon’s e book  structural steel clay that i wanted to strive.
