  • crimps for beading chain

    I'm trying to make a necklace on beading chain with individual beads held in place by crimps. I bought an beadalon magic crimper thinking I could make neat little beads,but they slide off and smaller ones won't crimp. Any ideas?

    I have the magic crimper as well and tried with just 1 thread and you are right it does not work at all.

    For it to work you need 2 threads through each bead for the crimp to become a little beads and stay where you placed it.

    What I could suggest is when you want to place a crimp and use the magic crimper thread another piece of wire through the crimp and then crimp and then trim off the excess and hopefully this should work for you and with a good pair of cutter you can get right beside the crimp and leave no trace.

    Hope this helps.
