Attaching a Cord End - Style 1

Step 1

For this technique, we are using a 1mm cord end with a 0.7mm chain.

Step 3

With very fine tipped chain nose pliers, grasp the center "crimp" area of the cord end.

Step 4

Squeeze the center area of the cord end until it is flat and the chain is secured.

Step 5

Repeat for the second side of the cord or chain. The loops on the cord end can now be used to attach jump rings or clasps.
