STEP 4
String a crimp onto a 4-inch length of beading wire then pass the wire through a hole created in Step 3. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp then pull so the crimp rests approximately 3mm from the metal component, leaving approximately 1/2 inch of beading wire on the end. Crimp then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.

String a rainbow 10mm round and a crimp onto the beading wire.

Pass the beading wire back through the crimp then pull so the crimp rests just above a small loop of beading wire. Crimp then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.
