Instructions

Step 1: Choose your beads first. Then, choose 3 complimentary colors of Soft Flex Wire and 2 colors of Pleather.

Step 2: Use Soft Flex® Flush Cutters to cut 10 inches of wire in each color.

Step 3: Use all three wires to string one 2mmx2mm crimp tube. Place the tube 1 1/2 inches from the end of the wires and secure using the Magical Crimping Pliers.

Step 4: Use one wire to string 1 Rectangle Bead. Repeat using the second wire. Repeat using the third wire. Use all three wires to string one 2mmx2mm crimp tube and place the tube so that it is 1 1/4 inches from the previous tube. Secure the tube using Magical Crimping Pliers.

Step 5: Repeat Step 4 four times.

Step 6: Use Flush Cutters to cut two of the wires from one end of the necklace. String one 2mmx2mm crimp tube and one half of one clasp. Pass back through the tube and secure using Regular Crimping Pliers. Use Flush Cutters to trim the excess wire at the clasp. Cover the crimp tube with a crimp cover. Repeat entire step using the other end of the necklace and the other half of the clasp.

Step 7: Use Flush Cutters to cut 10 inches of each color of Pleather and 10 inches of one color of Soft Flex Wire.

Step 8: Use all three strands of Pleather and wire to string one 3mmx3mm crimp tube and one half of the other clasp. Pass back through the tube and use the Mighty Crimping Pliers to secure. Use Flush Cutters to trim the excess wire at the crimp.

Step 9: Braid the Pleather and wire for 6-8 inches, to your desired length. Repeat Step 8 using the other half of the second clasp.

Step 10: Use both clasps to connect the beaded Soft Flex to the braided leather.
