Search around the internet for “split rings”, like another commenter said.
Amazon has some pretty good looking ones, like this. But definitely browse around for something you like.
You could probably also find some at a hobby shop. They’re also used in fishing around that size, but I can’t vouch for the quality.

Edit: it’s still very hard to make out a lot of detail. It almost looks like the fastening on the chain is where the charm is mounted.

The rings could also potentially be jump rings.
Make it how you like. You don’t need to make a carbon copy. You might end up with something even nicer.

This book has basic wire work instructions and lots of pictures for inspiration. I’ve had it for a long time and loaned it out to friends, always a hit.

I do some wire wrapping. Take it from me. The best thing you can do is NOT Get crafting grade tools when looking for cutters etc. Go for the stuff like you would find at home Depot. Here's some of the stuff I've found useful and good quality.

Bail making pliers

Chain nose pliers

Nylon tip pliers

Most times you can get away with regular wire cutters, but I bought a set of mini pliers and flush cutters at home Depot which are great for stuff in tight quarters.

These should get you through most things except long coils.

Whoops - I purchased this guy yesterday to try it out: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0017H3PIO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

But if I end up liking it, I will get the full tin, as you say.
I guess what I've been doing when I polish is applying the polishing compound on the cloth disk, and giving up instantly as soon as I see that it is turning my pieces grey and cloudy. I'll give it a bit longer this time. Thanks for your reply! All the best.

If you are only using butane torches and a pickle pot, you may be able to get away without one, but it is healthier if you use ventilation. You are going to inevitably burn oils and other contaminants and that should not be going into your lungs.

A 200 CFM, 4" duct fan can be used with a dryer hose and a 'vent periscope' box to make a permanent in-window vent system. Add some duct insulation and it won't bleed heat. The basic setup is about $60.

I'm using Acetylene, and that gives off soot, so I *need* a vent system. I will probably add a stove hood from the remodelling surplus store just for better smoke collection.

I do sterling silver wire wrapping in a few of my pieces & use these scissors to cut the wire: https://www.amazon.com/Joyce-Chen-51-0220-Unlimited-Scissor/dp/B0000CFLH7

These will work well on 22ga & 24ga silver, gold & plated, and though I have 3 pairs (for use in different areas of my studio), they all still work really well after 10 years of use. If you purchased a long chain of pre-made, just use these scissors to cut through a link and add your jump.

(Example of my wire wrapping so you can see how awesome these scissors are at making clean cuts: https://www.etsy.com/listing/578151951/amethyst-sterling-silver-scroll-earrings )

u/LadyDarkKitten · 1 pointr/jewelrymaking

You could always get her a Dremel work station like this one. Then a pair of soft jaw pliers. Why soft jaw pliers? Well it gets her hand away from the cutting/drilling edge, important if she is working with small stones. And the soft jaw wont mar the stones. In addition to that gripping small things when you have arthritis can aggravate the condition, with the pliers it will take longer for her hands to become fatigued.

this is the flux I got: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BQPX8W/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s05?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I was trying to solder fine silver bezel wire so I could set a stone, there wasn't any light coming through,
and I was soldering on a charcoal block.
So definitely not big stuff. And no matter what I tried, the solder wouldn't flow.
I bough solder from two different people off amazon and tried the whole range, easy through hard. Nothing.

Etruscan Granulation is probably a good place to start. Oppi Untracht's books on jewelry making have chapters on granulation that go into the technical details.

If you want it to look simiar to this... https://www.amazon.com/Yellow-Gold-Diamond-Cut-Earrings-Shepherds/dp/B002E9IQHY

Close the loop on the left. Open the loop at the bottom of an earring hook. Place both loops from the earring in the hook loop. Close hook loop.

I already wear glasses, so I use something like this.

It's a ring to close jump rings.
