crimp necklaces on beadalon wire

always cut your beading wire at least 6" longer than your finished project.

wrap scotch tape around one end of the beading wire.

string your desired design on your wire.

string one crimp bead on the open end of the wire, keep it approximately 2" from the end.  

string on your closure.

loop your wire back through the crimp bead.

slide the loop closer to the clasp so that the loop is not noticeable, but the clasp still moves freely.

use the tip of your crimping plier to flatten your crimp into a square.  you can also use a flat nose plier to do this.

thread your wire tail back through about one inch of beads, after an inch, you can cut the extra wire with your wire cutter.

 

then slide all of the beads down toward the finished end,

remove the scotch tape.

string another crimp bead on the wire, and pull it down against the beads.

string a closed jumping, or the other part of your closure.

loop your wire back through the crimp bead.

string the wire tail back through an inch of beads. use this tension to help you get the wire loop close to the closed ring, or the other part of your closure.

once the loop is to your liking, use your crimping plier to flatten the crimp bead into a square.  you can also use a flat nose plier to do this.

cut the extra wire with your wire cutter.
