Making your own wire wrapped hook and eye clasp

The Shiney Lounge's wire clasp tutorial has a lovely coiled wire detail for the eye part. I rather like the wrapping on the hook side as it means you are only forming one loop. If you try and form two loops together with your round nose pliers, the loops aren't going to be the same size because of the conical shape of the pliers. So it requires a bit of fiddling. Works best with bail forming pliers for that reason.

Good how to pics for the all purpose finding. Save money and make a handcrafted item at the same time.

Link goes to a tutorial shop. I think the picture is pretty, though. That's one way to purdy up a clasp!
