As shown earlier I had made a clasp mechanism that had a small post with a hole in it to keep the box closed.
I wanted to attached this with a chain but wondered how I was going to attach the other end to the box.
As I was deliberating my eye fell on a few of the cogs from that mixed bag. A few of them had loops built in that were just perfect for attaching jump rings.
After colouring one of them with the copper coloured Pebeo pen I went rummaging through my jewellery making supplies and found some cool dark metal coloured jump rings that would work well with the colour scheme.
I started to twist, loop and connect until I had a good length and then attached this to the post to check it was right.
Nope, a few more needed.
There we go!
This was then glued to the outside front of the box.
Now, would you like to see the finished thing?
Join me on the last page of this blog post to have a proper gander at what this ended up looking like.
