Q.
I am making a turquoise necklace and want to use the silver ball chain with the turquoise. How do you connect the chain to the turquoise?
- Deanna
A.
Finish the ends of the lengths of ball chain with a bead tip. Then either connect turquoise beading links to the bead tip using jumprings or the loop on the beading link. String the turquoise on Accu-Flex® beading wire and attach the wire to the loops on the bead tips using crimp beads.

To add bead tips to ball chain, choose a side-clamp bead tip that is suitable to the size ball chain you are working with, dip the last ball of the chain in E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive then place the side-clamp bead tip over it. The bead tip clamps over the ball of the ball chain and leaves you with a loop for connecting your design together.
