How to Use Add-a-Strand Neckwires

6911
Ever wonder how you could get a strand of beads intertwined with wire? Here's a secret.

: : : Materials : : :

STEP 1
Cut an 18" piece of Accu-Flex® beading wire. Make a knot on one end and add a drop of Hypo Tube Cement to secure. When the adhesive has dried, trim any excess Accu-Flex®.
STEP 2
Insert the unknotted end of Accu-Flex® up through the hole on one end of the add-a-strand neckwire.
STEP 3
Begin stringing your beads onto the Accu-Flex® beading wire. After stringing about 16 beads, begin twisting the beads and Accu-Flex® around the add-a-strand neckwire.
STEP 4
String and twist the beads so they go the length of the add-a-strand neckwire. Once you've completed that, pass the end of the Accu-Flex® through the hole on the other end of the add-a-strand neckwire.
STEP 5
Secure the end with a knot, keeping the strand as tight and close to the add-a-strand neckwire as possible. Add a drop of adhesive.

Let the glue dry before trimming any excess Accu-Flex® and before wearing your bead-wrapped neckwire.
