Supplies: - aragonite star – this one came from a gift shop at The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, if you check ebay or etsy, or just google “aragonite star” it you’ll find lots to choose from - wire – this is 20 gauge brass (still shiny, but it wil patina to match the chain) - necklace chain and clasp - round nose pliers - wire cutters - jeweler’s cement - needle nose pliers (optional, but they probably came with your round nose pliers so keep them handy) Use the round nose pliers to make a small loop at the end of the wire.
