Multi-strand - 3 to 1 Link With Hidden Crimps

Step 1

Cut a piece of Soft Flex Beading Wire to your desired length plus two inches. Crimp one end of the Soft Flex and cut the excess off with wire cutters.

Step 2

Slide the Soft Flex through the first hole on the 3 to 1 link so that the crimp bead is hidden inside the link.

Step 3

String beads onto the Soft Flex until the desired length has been reached.

Step 4

String the Soft Flex through the first hole on the second 3 to 1 link so that the Soft Flex comes through to the inside of the link.

Step 5

Slide a crimp bead onto the Soft Flex. Pull the 3 to 1 link as close to the string of beads as possible.

Step 6

Crimp the crimp bead as close to the 3 to 1 link as possible. Cut off the excess Soft Flex. The crimp will fall into the inside of the link.

Step 7

Repeat Steps 1-6 for each of the other holes in the link.

Step 8

Connect the single loop of one 3 to 1 link to one side of the clasp by attaching a jump ring.

Step 9

Repeat Step 8 to attach the remaining 3 to 1 link to the other side of the clasp to complete the piece.
