TUTORIAL - Wrapped Toggle Clasp Wire Jewelry Making Tutorial, PDF download only


Instant Digital Download

This is a terrific clasp for bracelets and necklaces. Toggle clasps are easy to operate and are very secure.

Because they are easy to operate with one hand they make an excellent clasp choice for a bracelet. I designed this particular one for my Wrapped Bead bracelet designs. One of these Wrapped Bead designs is covered in my Double Wrap Beads Tutorial, available wherever you purchased this tutorial.

You can make these in just about any thickness of wire. You want it to be sturdy enough to maintain its shape. Choose a gauge that matches the size of the main loop on your beads.

Contains full color photographs and text for each step. Just print those pages that you want to have at hand while you work.

I am going to use 16 gauge wire in the step by step example. You can make yours smaller and use a smaller gauge of wire.

The unwrapped version is for beginners or if you want a more streamlined look. The tutorial also contains additional steps for more experienced wire workers.

1 ½ foot 16 gauge (or 18 gauge) dead soft wire. Copper or Sterling Silver are my favorites. You can also use bronze, silver filled or gold filled.
Alternatives are different gauges as discussed in the introduction.
24 or 26 gauge wire for wrapping the clasp (optional)

Round Nose pliers
Flat nose or chain nose pliers
Flush wire cutter
Any larger mandrel (18mm in my example). You can use anything round.
Chasing Hammer (optional)
Anvil (optional)

Lead Free & Cadmium Free Pewter
Many of the pewter items in my shop are labeled in this way in the listings. It means there is less than 100 parts per million of lead and less than 75 parts per million of cadmium according to the data I am given by my supplier.

I do not provide any certifications that I receive from my suppliers. If you need those certification you will need to buy from the manufacturer directly or get your own testing done. There are reliable testing kits that are relatively inexpensive.
