How to Use French Wire with Thread691N
String the first bead in your design, one piece of French wire and the loop on one half of the clasp. Pass the needle back through the bead and pull the thread so there is a tail of thread about 3 inches long.
Make a knot below the bead using the tail thread and the working thread.
Optional: Dot the knot with G-S Hypo Cement. Let dry, then trim any excess thread from the tail.
After stringing the remaining beads in your design, add the second piece of French wire and the loop on the other half of the clasp. Pass the needle back through the last bead.
Pull the thread, taking out any remaining slack. Make a half-hitch knot. Repeat, making a double knot.Optional: Dot the knot with G-S Hypo Cement. Let dry, then trim the excess thread close to the knot.
