CrimpingMaterials Tools
Tip: The crimping tool has two notches in it--the back notch (closer to the handle) and the front notch (further from the handle). The back notch "crimps" the crimp bead and the front notch "rounds" the crimp bead.

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3
Step 1
String a crimp bead onto the Beading Wire.
Step 2
String one end of the clasp on the Beading wire. Then go back through the crimp bead, creating a loop around the clasp.
Step 3
Make sure that the wires are lying parallel to each other. Place the crimp bead into the back notch.
Step 4 Step 5 Step 6
Step 4
Squish the crimp bead.
Step 5
Turn the bead a quarter turn and place the crimp bead in the front notch.
Step 6
Gently squish the crimp bead. This will fold the crimped bead over on itself.
Step 7 Step 8 Step 9
Step 7
Use the wire cutter to cut off the small tail of the Beading Wire.
Step 8
Once one end of your piece of jewelry is completed, string your beads onto the Beading Wire.
Step 9
When you have finished stringing all of your beads, use the same crimping technique on the other end of the wire to finish the piece of jewelry.
