A simply way to make your own Angel necklace

Here's what you may need:

1 x  Metal Wing and Heart, Red Copper Color, 41.5mm x18mm x4mm
1 x  Metal Clasp & Clip Ends Set with Extender Chain, Platinum Color
1 x  Head pin 0.6mm x 50mm
1 x  Spacer Bead 2mm x 7mm
1 x  Cowhide Leather Cord 2.5mm, 65cm long

First, put each of 5540 Artemis bead, metal wing and heart, 5000 round bead and rondelle bead onto the head pin.

Next, bend the rest of the head pin into a loop by using a round nose pliers. Before you close the loop, hang the spacer bead on it. You may need to cut the head pin shorter in order to make a right size loop. Please refer to our tutorial - How to make a loop?

Then, put the leather cord and the suede cord together, and enclose one end of the cords with the metal clasp and clip ends set. For a easy way, hang the Angel by pulling the cords through the spacer bead. Now, you can do the same as you did one step before for the other end of the cords. Remember to cut the cords to make a perfect length of your  own necklace.

How to make a wire loop?

Method 1

Only 3 steps that you have to follow to make a wire loop in a prefect shape.

1. Bend the wire into a right angle with a chain nose pliers. 

2. Turn the wire to the opposite side by using the round nose pliers.

3. Keep turning the wire to make the wire loop as round as it can be.

Method 2

This time you may need a longer wire to finish it.

1. Follow step 1-3 in method 1.


2. Grip the wire loop by using the round nose pliers while wrapping the wire by using the chain nose pliers.

3. Decide how many coils that you want, two, three or four.

4. Cut off the excess wire, and remember to flatten the cut off point of the wire by using the chain nose pliers because it is quite sharp and pointed.

To secure your jewelery, method 2 is suggested to be used. The simple loop pin(eye pin) can be easily opened by any accident, and this may cause your jewelry falling apart.
