That's great! If you'd like to, please go right ahead. I only suggested SHH because he already had a series of pics done that got posted on another board.

That one is at DC Wireworks, in the "How-To" Section. http://www.chainmaille.prohosting.com/charles/howto/articles/hooksAmph/Amphooks.html

I can write instructions for that, if SHH is alright with it.

Nah, I always make my own. What I make depends on what I'm doing. Generally if I just want a sort of stop gap clasp to try something right away, I just take a coil, bend the first ring up 180 degrees, then cut the coil as normal. You sort of end up a figure 8, that has just a little bit missing in the top half. That's the hook. Then you just weave in the solid ring and you're set. Often I will make a more complex and or stronger clasp for a finished item, though it you make the figure 8 clasp both small and of a strong material, it can be good on it's own. (It's a bit like the curve hook in Cyana's article, but simpler.)

Camo,
Yep I've read the articles there and whie they're nice, I'm still looking.

I should have been more specific - what I'm looking for is a clasp that will look nice with a byzanitine bracelet. The hook in the "Hooks, clasps, and finrger rings" article is close, so's the in "chao clasps" but I'm still looking.

I promise that when I find one I'll post instructions.

In the meantime, are these the clasps most of you use to connect your bracelets and necklaces, do you have other ways you'd like to share, or do you use the storebought lobster-claw or spring-ring kind?

I would like to see an article on clasps. I've learned a few nice weaves, but I need good ideas on how to connect the ends for bracelets, or a waist-chain (one end dangles the other connects to some "middle" part of the chain.

Any takers?

i'd like to see an equation that calculated the number of rings in a jap6-1 haxagon or triangle..

finished or loose edges..
i'd be happy with a 90% accuracy.

Both good ideas. I like this since sometimes you have the time and all to do an article, but just no real idea of what you would do... would a table of ring# for Japanese 6-1 do? If someone else can do the math and programing perhaps it could be turned into a calculator... probably the sort of thing you want a few people working on to make sure you cover as many ring sizes and wire guages as possible. I suppose I'd be game to collect some data for that. Anyone else?
