Single-Strand Necklace with Celestial Crystal® Beads and Copper-Plated Glass Beads

STEP 1
Using a pair of chain-nose pliers and flat-nose pliers, open a 4mm jumpring. Pass the open ring through a loop on the ring half of the toggle clasp. Close the jumpring.

Repeat to add a 4mm jumpring to the bar half of the clasp. Add a jumpring to the jumpring, giving a little length to the toggle bar so it can pass through the toggle ring once the necklace is strung.
STEP 2
Using side-cutting pliers, cut a 29-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube, a 1/2-inch piece of French wire and the jumpring attached to the ring half of the toggle clasp. Pass the wire back through the crimp tube, leaving one end of the wire approximately 1-inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the French wire and the clasp so the French wire is formed in a nicely curved tube. Place a small amount of adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using side-cutting pliers, trim the excess wire from the short end.

STEP 18
String on one crimp tube and a 1/2-inch of French wire through the 4mm jumpring on the round portion of the clasp.

Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using side-cutting pliers, trim excess wire from the end.
