I finished the necklace- woohoo! I had some issues with the pliers and would love more of a tutorial on how to use those...I ended up pinching the jumpring out of shape when I was trying to get it to line up. Ultimately, it worked out but only after a struggle. Also, the agate slice seems so heavy on one thin piece of string-- my fingers are crossed that my knot stays tied (even with the nail polish.) And additionally, does it matter which way the clasp goes? After I completed it, I realized this may be upside down-- or maybe it doesnt make a difference? Thanks, For The Makers-- it was a really fun project and I cant wait to wear it!!
