Instructions
Cut 2 pieces of Soft Touch (XCR-5443) wire 24 inches long. Secure one end of the first strand so that your beads don't slide off. We recommend using a Bead Stopper (XTL-3001).On the first strand of wire, thread a pearl (PEW-1013) and a charlotte (BCS-2160) to your soft touch wire. Repeat until you have 87 pearls and 85 charlottes on the soft touch wire. Thread on a 2x2 crimp bead (FCR-1122). Thread the strand through the loop hole on the circle part of the toggle clasp. Now thread the wire back through the crimp bead and crimp with your crimping pliers (XTL-5200). Trim off excess wire. Cover the crimp with one of the corrugated crimp covers (FCR-1030), gently squeezing closed with chain nose pliers.Take off the Bead Stopper at the other end of the Soft Touch wire. Thread on a 2x2 crimp bead. Thread wire back through the loop hole on the T-bar part of the toggle clasp. Now thread the wire back through the crimp bead and crimp with your crimping pliers. Trim off excess wire. Cover the crimp with one of the corrugated crimp covers (FCR-1030), as before.On the second strand of wire place the bead stopper on first. Now thread on 5 charlottes. Next thread 7 pearls, and a spacer on to the wire. Repeat this pattern 15 times. Now thread 5 more charlottes on to the wire. Thread on a 2x2 crimp bead (FCR-1122).
