· 20ga dead soft round wire (1.5" (4cm) for one link)
· Flat nose pliers
· 6 Step Barrel Pliers (you may use round nose pliers with 5mm and 2mm diameter marks)
· Wire cutters
Step 2: bend the wire around 5mm jaw so the wire ends meet each other and form 180 degree angle. Both wire ends have to be the same.
Step 3: Using flat nose pliers grab one wire end just by the “intersection” and bend at an angle 90°.
Step 4. Repeat step 3 with another wire end.
Step 5: Make sure that both ends run parallel and they are the same length (if not, just cut the longest end to even both ends).
Step 6: Using the thinnest jaw of barrel pliers (2mm mark on round nose pliers), grab both wire ends and make a loop (eyelet). First link is done.
Step 7: Repeat steps 1-5 for the next link (do not make an eyelet yet!)
Step 8: Slide semi-finished link into the first link’s eyelet as shown.
Step 9: Repeat step 6 to make eyelet.
Step 10: Work in the same manner until your chain has desired length!
