Wire For Beading FAQs

How To Use Bead Wire?

To use bead wire, cut the desired length, adding extra for crimping. String your beads onto the wire, arranging them as desired. Secure the ends with crimp beads or crimp tubes, using crimping pliers for a tight finish. Attach clasps or findings to the crimped ends. Bead wire's flexibility and strength make it ideal for creating durable and elegant jewellery pieces.

How To Tie Bead Stringing Wire?

To tie bead stringing wire, first thread a crimp bead onto one end of the wire. Loop the wire for beading through a clasp or jump ring, then back through the crimp bead. Slide the crimp bead close to the clasp and use crimping pliers to flatten it, securing the wire. Trim any excess wire. Repeat the process on the other end of the wire, ensuring your beads are securely held in place for a polished finish.

How To Bead With Wire?
