Twisted, Crusty Toggle

                                                                               by Kelli Pope

 Looking for a new twist on a toggle?    

I started with a copper disc 
and and a patinated copper sheet. 



Cut a strip from the sheet.   (Obviously, you could patina after, also, as I did with the disc)  File down the copper strip until its nice and smooth, with no rough edges. 

 Punch a hole in the disc. 


Wrap the copper strip around your pliers, so it twists and lengthens, sort of into a cone.   

Punch a hole in the tube.  

 Run a headpin through the hole, and wrap a loop.   Add jump rings, or chain.  



               And there you have it.....





Twisted and crusty.... just the way I like it!!!!
