Step 1

String your beading wire through the center hole of your first Magic Finding. Leave your desired length of beading wire sticking out the far end of the Magic Finding.

Step 2

Place a bead stopper at the far end of your beading wire right next to the Magic Finding. This will keep your beads and beading wire in the correct spot.

Step 3

Begin stringing your beads onto the beading wire (on the opposite end of the bead stopper) until you get to your desired length.

Step 4

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

Step 5

String the beading wire back down through another side hole of the Magic Finding. Leave a 1/4" gap between your beads and the Magic Finding.

Step 6

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

Step 7

Repeat steps 2-5 until you have your desired amount of strands. You can string between 1-7 strands. Make sure the last strand will go through the center hole of the second Magic Finding.

Step 8

Once your stinging is completed, place the assembled Magic Finding in the center of the larger hole of the Magic Finding Plier. Crimp the Magic Finding.

Step 9

Open the tool slightly, rotate the Magic Finding 90 degrees and crimp again.

Step 10

Repeat steps 8-9 in the large hole of the Magic Finding Pliers three times or until the jaws of the tool can close completely.

Step 11

Place the Magic Finding in the small hole of the Magic Finding Plier. Crimp the Magic Finding.

Step 12

Open the tool slightly, rotate the Magic Finding 90 degrees and crimp again.

Step 13

Repeat steps 11-12 in the small hole of the Magic Finding Plier three times or until the jaws of the tool can close completely.

Step 14

Repeat steps 8-13 with the second Magic Finding.

Step 15

Congratulations! You have now successfully used a Magic Finding with the Magic Finding Plier.
