Are you thinking of making these as a gift? Why not add a presentation box or gift bag to your order.
Start by setting the green agate faceted stone in a sterling silver wraptite link setting. Place the faceted stone face down (flat side down) onto a firm surface such as a magazine placed on your work surface, and apply gently pressure to 'click' the stone into place (providing the stone is a good fit). Using a piece of wire to keep the loop open, squeeze to tighten the setting around the stone with the tips of round nose jewellery pliers. For more tips on how to set wraptite settings click here.
Using snipe or flat nose jewellery pliers open a 5mm sterling silver jump ring, attach the gingko leaf charm and one end of the wraptite setting. For more tips on opening and closing jump rings click here.
Snipe nose pliers - for bending metal wire and opening or closing jump rings
Flat nose pliers - for gripping wider surfaces, bending angles in sheet or wire and opening and closing jump rings or loops
Round nose pliers - for tightening the loops around the stone and a piece of wire to hold the loops open whilst you are doing this
