Supplies Needed

You ’ re going to need the pursuit :

  • Decorative stone or large bead with a hole drilled through the length of it.
  • Smaller complementary beads
  • 2 Crimp tubes
  • Bead stringing wire (I’m using 0.30 mm thickness)
  • Crimping pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Flat nose pliers

needle threader supplies
Tools – flat nose pliers ( left ), crimping pliers ( center ), cable cutters ( right )
The wire I am using is 0.30 millimeter thickness which works with a size 22 acerate leaf. If you use a smaller needle you will need to ensure the wire you buy will pass through the eye of the needle when folded in a loop but is besides still firm enough to hold the shape of the closed circuit

Crimping tubes, size 2 works with this particular size of wire – note on the wire spool pictured above it states what size fold to use, thus if you change your wire thickness, be sure to double-check the crimp size required .
crimp tubes
There are two steps to using crimping pliers, inaugural you use the inner semi-circle area to crush the tube in identify and trap the wires, then you use the out area to round the oppress metro .
