We will be making a single strand necklace or triple/quadruple wrap bracelet. The design can be worn both ways and it is adjustable in length. During our presentation, we will demonstrate how to create a hook clasp and a ball and loop chain using a mirco butane torch and chasing hammer. The design can be comepleted without the use of a torch but you will need to supply your own clasp and chain or create one using the 20 ga. wire provided in the kit.
