Use crimp beads to secure flexible beading wire. Slide the crimp bead into place, and squeeze it firmly with chain nose pliers to flatten it. Or, for a more finished look, use crimping pliers:
- Position the crimp bead in the hole that is closest to the handle of the crimping pliers.
- Holding the wires apart, squeeze the pliers to compress the crimp bead, making sure one wire is on each side of the dent.
- Place the crimp bead in the front hole of the pliers, and position it so the dent is facing the tips of the pliers. Squeeze the pliers to fold the crimp in half.
- Tug on the wires to ensure that the crimp bead is secure.
