Cut a ¾" piece of 20 ga. wire. Using chain nose pliers, make a 90° bend 3/8" from the end of the wire. Switch to round nose pliers, and form a round loop from the 3/8" length of wire. Use round nose pliers to form the remaining 3/8" of wire into a round loop, perpendicular to the previous loop. Repeat a second time.
Push open one of the loops and slide the wire through one of the loops on the slider. Close the loop. Repeat on the opposite side.
Measure two pieces of chain, 8½" each. Use two pairs of chain nose pliers to open the links. While the link is open, slide it through the open loop of one wire links attached to the oval slider. Repeat on the opposite side.
Open the end link of the chain and attach one side of the clasp. Repeat on the opposite side.
