Beaded Jewelry Design Ideas
First decide on a specific design for your necklace. This will help you to plan how you can string the beads.
* Now, cut a piece of tigertail wire adding an extra 5 inches to the total length of the necklace.
Insert a crimp bead and one half of the clasp into the wire. Slide the wire back into the crimp bead and using pliers, flatten the bead so that it stays in place.
Through the open end of the wire, string the beads. After all the beads have been strung, insert another crimp bed and another half of the clasp.
Pull the wire so that all the beads are tight fitted. Then, insert the end into the crimp bead again and using pliers, flatten it. Wear the necklace by joining the two clasps.
Oval Bead Bracelet
Arrange beads of different sizes and colors in two rows in a bead board. Make one row slightly longer than the other.
Arranging the beads in a bead board will make it easier to string the beads. Using a wire cutter, cut two strands of a wire.
Take one strand and string the crimp cover. Now crimp on a crimp bead using pliers and fix it in place. Slide the crimp cover over the crimp bed and slide it in place.
