Q.

Secure with crimp beads or crimp tubes for a secure, professional finish.

When stringing your design on Accu-Flex® beading wire, attach the ends of the necklace to the loop(s) on each half of the toggle clasp using crimp beads or crimp tubes. Many designer-artists use precious metal crimps to match the high-quality beading material in their designs. This great finding is also available in a variety of materials and finishes including black so you can match your crimps to any design components. Choosing crimps will garuntee a secure design.

An alternative to crimps is a newer finding called Screw-Tite Crimps™. Screw-Tite Crimps not only secure your Accu-Flex beading wire to your clasp, they also allow you to change your clasp out for a different one, should you want a different look.

When stringing your design on thread or silk, finish the ends with a knot and a bead tip. Attach the loop on the bead tip to the loop(s) on each half of the toggle for a neat and clean finish.
