Our internet connection went down last night as I was trying to up load my new tutorial to the website - typical! Oh well, here it is now, the first tutorial photographed in my new workshed!
I've been meaning to write up a tutorial on how to make your own toggle clasps for ages, ever since I started teaching them to the beginners classes at college. I find it useful to be able to direct students to my website to download a free tutorial to remind them of the techniques if they lose their notes or miss a couple of lessons. And, of course, I like to have a variety of tutorials available for the rest of you to download too! This tutorial shows you how to make your own simple toggle clasp from silver wire, and gives you some ideas on how to adapt the design to suit your own jewellery. It's free to download - all you need is a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat reader which you can download for free here. The tutorial itself can be found here!
I've got a couple more tutorials photographed as well. They're projects rather than techniques this time, and will be available as soon as I've written up the instructions.
