Step By Step Instructions
- Cut about one foot of medium gray Softflex beading cord. Secure one end
with a bead stopper or piece of tape to make sure your beads don't slide off
- String on the components in the following order: a silver-plated spiral
bead, a Rainforest glass bead, a pewter fish bead, a Rainforest glass bead,
a pewter fish bead, a Rainforest glass bead, a pewter fish bead, a Rainforest
glass bead, and a silver-plated spiral bead.
- String a 2x2 silver-filled crimp tube on one end of the strung SoftFlex
wire, make a loop around one side of the toggle clasp set, and return the
wire back through the crimp bead, leaving enough of a wire tail to enable
you to adjust the size of the loop. Once your loop is the size you want it,
crimp the crimp tube with crimping pliers and trim the wire end with flush
- String a crimp tube on the other end of the strung SoftFlex, make a loop
around the other side of the toggle clasp set, and return the wire back through
the crimp bead, making sure the tension is good and the second loop is the
size you want. Then crimp the crimp tube using crimping pliers and trim the
wire end with flush cutters.
- Cover each of the crimps with an antique silver plated 4mm crimp cover.
Here's how: If your crimp cover needs to be opened, you can use two pairs
of chain nose pliers to gently open the cover. Then center the crimp cover
over the crimp tube (some people use their hands for this, others chain nose
pliers to pick up the crimp cover) and gently squeeze close the crimp cover
using either your chain nose pliers OR crimping pliers. It helps to move your
crimping pliers around the crimp cover to help round it out nicely.
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'RE READY FOR THE BEACH!
