When using Accu-Flex® beading wire, crimping and/or gluing work well. A cyanoacrylate adhesive, or super glue, is the best choice for this type of design as they are quick drying and suitable for using with a variety of surfaces. Loctite® 409 gel might be the best choice overall as it has gap filling properties as well as will not drip.
Still another option is Bead Huggers™. These are used in place of knots to separate lightweight beads as they stay snug against beading wire and act as a buffer or placeholder to keep beads in the position you want; this is called the intermittent stringing technique.
