Crimping Heavy Beads
Fabia wants to know about crimping heavy beads, especially for multi-strand beaded necklaces. She wrote,
I have been practicing and doing a lot of research on how to finish a necklace or bracelet. I am planning on selling my jewellery and want to make heavy multi-strand necklaces, etc. but I am so confused!
I have seen people flat crimp only, I have seen crimping with the crimping tool (which is what I've been doing), I have seen crimp covers, wire guards and french guardians and all the above!!
Which is the most secure and best method? I personally don't mind the look of a crimp without a cover but I am so worried that it will all break! Please help! Thank you:)
