For example, above the table. Filter the beads until you find your favorite design. Try using different color beads. You might even want to go to a multi-layered bead string. Or you might want a collar that can be wrapped around your neck a few times. It is also a long ring.
Step 2: Place the bead on a flat surface.
Because the bead board is a tool. Therefore, the beads can be threaded in a large place. And quickly improve your design skills. You can use it to measure the length of the necklace. Also fix the beads in place. If you plan to make necklaces on a regular or even irregular basis. A wooden board should be prepared.
Place your beads in the number zero in the design of your choice. Use the side numbers and dashes to measure the length of the necklace.
Use the channel to arrange the beads.
Tray illustrations are used to secure beads and discoveries.
Step 3: Cut the determined length of the bead line.
Plus 6 inches. For example, you want to make a necklace. Then cut a total of 22 inches of thread (16 inches plus 6 inches).

Making a beaded necklace:
Step 1: Slide a small ball onto the strings.
Then, slide the crimp beads into. Press down again about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Remember that you have not yet transferred your design to the thread. These are essential initial steps. And make sure your necklace is safe.
Step 2: Place one end of the buckle (jumping ring) on the crimping beads.
Then, make a loop with the threading material.
Step 3: Pass the end of the threading material through the buckle portion.
Then add the “bead-crimp-bead” combination. Use a crimping tool / needle nose pliers to crimp it into place.If using a bead line. You can put a little glue on either end. To ensure that the beads and crimps remain the same. ). These steps will prevent the wire material from rubbing at both ends of the bead. This causes the necklace to break.
Step 4: Slide your design onto the string.
After being satisfied with the design. Please carefully remove one bead at a time. Then string it on the thread. Make sure to leave approximately 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm) of wire material at the end.
The beads are threaded onto the threading material. Until there is nothing on the bead board.
Step 5: Use a buckle/hop ring and a bead-crimp-bead combination.
Try pushing the remaining pull material into the bead hole below the pressure strip.
Be careful not to pull the cable material too tightly. Leave a little slack on the necklace, about 2-4 mm or 1/4 inch. This leaves space for the bead to move and rotate. So they don’t rub each other or thread too much material. If the threading material is too tight, the necklace will harden. This will make the design look angular. Instead of a slight round like a necklace.
Step 6: Crimp the second end.
Then use a slush knife to cut the cable material. It is not recommended that you cut the wire too close to the crimp beads. A 1 inch (2.5 cm) wire is carefully hidden in the bead hole. It is a good guarantee to prevent breakage.
