1

Step one

Cut two lengths of wire approx15cms long and centre an agate puffy square on the length of wire

2

Step two

Bend the wires horizontally across the back of the puffy square agate making sure that the desired side of the stone is facing the front

3

Step three

Place your flat nose pliers at the centre point on one of the horizontal wires and bend the wire straight up

4

Step four

With the opposite wire create a wrapped loop around the bent wire close to the back of the stone

5

Step five

Place the round nose pliers directly above the wrapped loop (this will create a space for the wraps) and bend the wire at a right angle

6

Step Six

Reposition the pliers back on the wire and bring the wire back over the prong creating a loop and add a T-bar element from a toggle clasp

7

Step seven

Finish by creating a wrapped loop and trim the excess wire. Make sure the ends of the cut wire are pressed in well with your pliers to avoid any sharp edges
