Topics: Beads, Curved Tubes

Q.
When using curved tube beads how do you keep the beads from turning on the wire? They are pretty when properly in place but they keep turning and it destroys the look of the necklace.

A.
To control the turning of the curved tube beads and the layout of the design, create beading links out of them. String your curved tube bead onto an eyepin and form a simple loop on the other end or use a length of wire and form wrapped loops on each end. Use jumprings to link your design together.
