Start with a 3-inch length of 16- to 14-gauge wire. Using round-nose pliers, grip one end of the wire close to the end with the tips of the pliers. Rotate your wrist to form a simple loop. Repeat on the other end of the wire, so the loop is facing the opposite direction from the first.
Position one end of the wire in the round-nose pliers, near the widest part of the barrels, right below the loop. With the loop facing you, rotate your wrist away from you to form a large loop.
Repeat on the other end of the wire to create the ''S'' link. Connect the ''S'' links together using jumprings for your own, handcrafted chain.
For variation, alter the position of the round-nose pliers to change the size of the curves.
