I've just started to make beaded watches, but i'm having problems attaching two strands of wire together at the end, I used crimps but i went to crimp one and it crimp the other at the same time, which I didn't want, is there anything else anyone can suggest, that I can use to attach the wires together?

Thanks :confused:

There are quite a few of us make watches on here. What fastening are you using and how are you beading them?

Hi, I am using a trigger clasp and a chain extender for my fastenings, I have used two strands of swarovski crystals with a few spacer bars to keep the strands together. :)

I would put the two strands together and slip on a bead and then put your crimp on to hold it all together.

Does that make sense :confused:
