3 Toggle Clasps
In this tutorial I will be showing you how to make 3 different Toggle Clasps. Three Toggle Rings and three Toggle Bars 6 pieces in all. They will all be interchangeable allowing you to mix and match as you choose. Oxidize them or leave them shinny, hammer them for a more organic look or leave them smooth and round, wire in beads for another look. These designs are basic and flexible giving you a strong foundation to get creative.
This tutorial was intended to be more than just a pattern. My intention with this tutorial is to teach you techniques and tips that will hopefully help you to develop good working habits that will transfer to all your projects. A simple design well done is far more attractive than a complicated design done with poor technique. Paying attention to the little details and developing good technique and good workmanship habits is the answer. There is a lot of detail in this tutorial which is why there are so many steps.
You will be using all round wire in variety of wire gauges 18, 20 16 and 14. You will also need some Half Round wire in 18 and/or 20 gauge. All in metal of your choice. A bench block and chasing hammer will be needed to flatten your wire when needed. You can use dowel rods to form your Toggle rings on. This Tutorial includes Metric measurements as well Inches. No special tools are needed for this design. other than what was mentioned above.
