| Step 1 |
String a crimp bead onto the Soft Flex
| Step 2 |
String one end of the clasp on the Soft Flex. 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 of the crimping pliers.
| Step 4 |
Squish the crimp bead with the crimping pliers.
| Step 5 |
Turn the crimp bead a quarter turn and place the crimp bead in the front notch of the crimping pliers.
| Step 6 |
Gently squish the crimp bead with the crimping pliers. This will fold the crimped bead over on itself.
| Step 7 |
Use the wire cutter to cut off the small tail of the Soft Flex.
| Step 8 |
String beads onto the Soft Flex until you have reached your desired length.
| Step 9 |
For our extender chain we are using a 2 inch piece of silver chain. String a crimp bead and the end of the extender chain on the Soft Flex. Pass the Soft Flex back through the crimp bead, creating a loop around one link in the extender chain and crimp with the crimping pliers.
| Finishing Option 1 |
Use a jump ring (See the Opening and Closing a Jump Ring technique.) and add a charm to the end of the extender chain.
