|1) Thread your wire through a french crimp, and then through the loop on your fastener. (Illustration here is shown using a barrel screw clasp.)
Use 2 french cimps if you are using heavy beads.
|2) Then thread the wire back through the crimp, forming a small loop that allows movement but small enough to be neat.
Flatten out your french crimp with a flat-nose plier or crimping pliers to firmly secure the crimp position.
When you thread on your beads, slide them up towards your crimped end. Thread the left-over wire into the beads to hide it.
|3) When you have finished stringing on all your beads to your specific design, thread another french crimp at the other end, and do the same as above and thread the spare end of the wire into the beads so as to hide it from sight.|
