|Use chain-nose pliers to open the loop (eye) on one eyepin. String the first link of a length/s of chain or one end of a strand/s then close the loop.
Thread ends can be knotted directly onto the eyepin then trim excess thread.
|String the wide end of the cone of your choice onto the straight end of the eyepin. Position the cone over the ends of the chain or strands so they are hidden.|
|Using round-nose pliers, grip the eyepin approximately 1/4 inch above the point of the cone then bend the wire to a 90 degree angle. Bend the wire around the pliers forming a partial loop.
OPTIONAL: Open the loop slightly and string the loop of a clasp or attach with jumprings at the end.
Use chain-nose pliers to wrap the remainder of the wire around the base of the loop, to the top of the cone, completing the loop then trim excess wire. Make sure to keep your wraps tight and close together.
