Cut one 24-inch length of Accu-Flex professional-quality beading wire.
String onto one length of beading wire: one crimp and one Accu-Guard™ wire protector. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire. Finish with a crimp cover.

12 natural mother-of-pearl rounds
Eight indicolite AB 6mm rounds
