| Step 1 |
Make a spiral as shown in the Spiral Head Pin technique steps 1-13.
| Step 2 |
Grasp the wire at the base of the spiral with the round nose pliers.
| Step 3 |
Pull the wire around the round nose pliers until it touches the spiral.
| Step 4 |
Grasp the spiral with the chain nose pliers. Make sure that part of the spiral is showing. Pull the wire down - forming it against the spiral.
| Step 5 |
Reposition the spiral in the chain nose pliers. Again, pull the wire down - forming it to the base of the spiral.
| Step 6 |
Using the base of the round nose pliers, grasp the wire directly above the spiral.
| Step 7 |
Pull the wire down and around the pliers until the wire touches the spiral.
| Step 8 |
Use the wire cutters to cut the end of the wire off at about the point when it meets the spiral.
| Step 9 |
Then grasp the end of the wire with the tips of the round nose pliers.
| Step 10 |
Slightly bend the wire back. This will put a soft bend in the wire and finish the hook.
| Step 11 |
Congratulations! You have made a spiral hook clasp.
| Step 12 |
To harden the clasp without changing its shape, place the clasp on a steel bench block. Then use a nylon hammer or plastic mallet. Hammer the clasp several times.
| Step 13 |
Hardening the clasp will help the clasp keep its shape.
