Hi

I want to enter the new I-beads, Swarovski and beadalon competition that has started on I-Beads as I reeeeaaaally want to win those prizes! (500 euro hamper of Swarovski and beadalon products! and 100 euro voucher!) but I haven't worked with the fancy stones and the settings before and i was wondering, what's the best way to join them with wire to be secure? help please 

heres the competition:

Are you going to be using bead-stringing wire? If so, the most secure way to join them to the clasp at the ends would be to use crimps.

If I'm misunderstanding your question, let me know.

hi Cat.

 

thank you for your reply. I'm not really sure where to start,  i wanted to make a bracelet similar to the one I-Beads used on their picture (in the link above) but i wasn't sure which wire would be best?.. i guess it needs to be flexible but strong.

Sorry..i am very new to this. Then yes using crimps to hold them in place would be good too. I suppose I will just start experimenting. 

 

Thank You!
