| Step 1 |
Crimp a clasp onto one end of your beading wire.
| Step 2 |
Add a 2x1mm crimp bead to the beading wire. I have placed mine about an inch from the clasp.
| Step 3 |
Use chain nose pliers to hold the crimp bead in place.
| Step 4 |
Flatten the crimp bead with the chain nose pliers.
| Step 5 |
Add a bead to the beading wire.
| Step 6 |
Add another 2x1mm crimp bead. Flatten the crimp bead on the other side of the bead.
| Step 7 |
Add another 2x1mm crimp bead. I have spaced mine about an inch from the last bead. Then repeat steps 3-7 until desired length.
| Step 8 |
When you have reached your desired length, finish your piece by crimping the other end of the clasp onto the beading wire.
| An Alternative |
As an alternative, try crimping the 2x1mm crimp bead with a pair of crimping pliers rather than chain nose pliers.
