1. Cut four 1-yd. (.9m) pieces of beading wire. String a regular crimp bead over all four strands, 2 in. (5cm) from the ends. Crimp the crimp bead (PHOTO A).

2. String a cone, a large crimp bead, and half the clasp over the tail end of the wires, covering the regular crimp. Go back through the large crimp bead, tighten the loop, and crimp the crimp bead (PHOTO B) with the mighty crimping pliers. Trim the tails as close to the crimp bead as possible.
