Basic techniques for making jewelry yourself: attaching a crimp bead and a crimp bead concealer

Attaching a crimp bead and a crimp bead concealer

In this post we are going to talk about one of the basic techniques you need to make jewelry. Namely: confirming a crimp bead and a crimp bead hider. You can find all the parts you see in our shop! View the specific articles at the bottom of the page. 

What do you need?

How does it work?

  • We start by attaching a lock to your jewelry. Thread a crimp bead and then a clasp onto your wire. Then put the wire back into the crimp bead.
  • Package crimp bead pliers or flat nose pliers and squeeze the bead shut.
  • To hide the crimp bead you can use a crimp bead hider. But you can also choose not to.
  • You can apply the crimp bead concealer with flat nose pliers. Wrap the bead around the crimp bead and squeeze it shut again.
  • Repeat these steps again when you have finished stringing your jewelry. Then use an extension piece or other ends.
  • Finished!
