Instructions

Step 1: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut two 4 inch pieces of Soft Touch™ .010 Wire from the spool.

Step 2: Use 1 wire to string the hole of the Thai Silver Flower Pendant. Use both ends of wire to string one 1mmx1mm crimp tube. Snug the tube next to the pendant and secure the crimp tube using Micro Crimping Pliers.

Step 3: Use the edge of the Chain Nose Pliers to gently skim the wire so that it coils slightly.

Step 4: Use 1 wire to string enough Treasure beads to nearly fill the wire. String one 1mmx1mm crimp tube and use Micro Crimping Pliers to secure the crimp tube to the very end of the wire.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-6 using the other 4 inch wire.

Step 6: Use Soft Flex® Professional Flush Cutters to cut 18 inches of Soft Touch™ Wire, .019 diameter from the spool.

Step 7: String one 2mmx2mm Crimp Tube and one half of the clasp. Pass back through the tube and secure using crimping pliers. Cut off excess wire at the crimp using Flush Cutters.
