crimp beads in different types of metals, even gold and silver.
Put your crimp bead around the knot you've tied between the clasp and the beads of your jewelry.
Start closing your crimp bead. Take your crimping pliers, and put your bead into the largest circle on your pliers.
Put low pressure on your crimp bead to start to close it. Turn the
crimp bead so that you press it gently from many different directions.
This will keep you from distorting the bead's shape.
Finish closing the crimp bead. Place your crimp bead into the smaller
circle of the crimping pliers. Apply low pressure to gently close the
beads. Turn the crimp bead so that you apply pressure from many different
directions until it is completely closed.
Repeat steps 2 through 6 over the knot at the other end for your jewelry piece.
Step 1 Cut 20cm length jewelry wire. Bend one side of the wire and form a right-angle.
Step 2 Use round nose plier to make a simple loop.
Step 3 String a bead.
Step 4 Bend the other side of the wire and form a right-angle.
Tip: Reserve a bead’s length space for wire wrapping later.
Step 5 Make a simple loop.
Step 6 Continue to wrap the loops until it comes to your desired length.
Step 7 Wrapping the wire around the bead.
Step 8 Wrap loops of the jewelry wire until it reaches to the simple loop in the beginning.
Step 9 Cut the extra jewelry wire.
Step 10 Congratulations, you’ve successfully made a wire wrapped bead.
