Step 1

Crimp one end of your Soft Flex beading wire (cut to desired length plus 2 inches) to the first loop of one of the 3 to 1 links.

Step 2

String beads onto the Soft Flex until you have reached your desired length.

Step 3

Crimp the other end of your Soft Flex to the first loop of the second 3 to 1 link.

Step 4

Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each of the other loops of the 3 to 1 link.

Step 5

Connect the single loop of the 3 to 1 link to one side of the clasp by attaching a jump ring.

Step 6

One end of the piece is now finished.

Step 7

Repeat step 5 to finish the other side of the piece.
