Double-Strand Necklace with Swarovski Crystal and Black Onyx Gemstone Beads

STEP 1
Using flush-cutters, cut a 33-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire. String onto the wire one crimp tube. Pass the wire through the first jumpring on the filigree rectangle portion of the box clasp and back through the crimp tube leaving one end of the wire approximately 1 inch long. Pull the crimp tight against the jumpring. Place a small amount of gel adhesive inside the crimp (Loctite® optional).

Using the crimping pliers, crimp the crimp tube. Using flush-cutters, trim the excess wire from the short end. Close a crimp cover over the crimp bead.
