Step 1

String the end of your beading wire up through the center hole of the first Magic Finding.

Step 2

String the beading wire back down through a side hole of the Magic Finding.

Step 3

Pull taut until the beading wire lays flat against the Magic Finding. There should be a short tail of beading wire sticking out the bottom of the Magic Finding.

Step 4

Using wire cutters, cut off the tail end of beading wire sticking out from the bottom of the Magic Finding.

Step 5

String your beads to your desired length.

Step 6

After stringing your beads, string your beading wire through the center hole of the second Magic Finding.

Step 7

String your beading wire back down through a side hole of the Magic Finding.

Step 8

Pull taut until the beading wire lays flat against the Magic Finding.

Step 9

Repeat steps 5-8 until you have your desired amount of strands. By leaving two opposing side holes in the Magic Finding for the Omega Insert, you can string between 1-3 strands.

Step 10

Using wire cutters, cut off the excess beading wire sticking out from the bottom of the Magic Finding.

Step 11

Attach your desired clasp or finding to the Omega Insert by threading one of the Omega Insert prongs through the opening. We are using a lobster claw clasp.

Step 12

Place the Omega Insert through two opposing side holes of the Magic Finding. Push down until the prongs of the Omega Insert are sticking out the other end of the Magic Finding. You should hear a click when inserted properly.

Step 13

Place the assembled Magic Finding in the center of the larger hole of the Magic Finding Plier. Make sure the Omega Insert is running parallel with the Magic Finding Plier.

Step 14

Press down on the Magic Finding with your finger to make sure it is in place. Crimp the Magic Finding.

Step 15

Open the tool slightly and rotate the Magic Finding 90 degrees. Push the Omega Insert inward making sure it is in place and crimp again.

Step 16

Repeat steps 14-15 three times in the large hole of the Magic Finding Plier or until the jaws of the tool can close completely.

Step 17

Place the Magic Finding in the center of the small hole of the Magic Finding Pliers. Push the Omega Insert inward making sure it is in place and crimp.

Step 18

Open the tool slightly and rotate the Magic Finding 90 degrees. Push the Omega Insert inward making sure it is in place and crimp again.

Step 19

Repeat steps 17-18 three times in the small hole of the Magic Finding Plier or until the jaws of the tool can close completely.

Step 20

Repeat steps 11-18 for the second Magic Finding. We are using a 6mm closed jump ring.

Step 21

Congratulations! You have successfully used the Magic Finding and Omega Insert with the Magic Finding Plier.
