String a crimp bead onto the Soft Flex.
String one end of the clasp on the Soft Flex. Then go back through the crimp bead, creating a loop around the clasp.
Make sure that the wires are lying parallel to each other. Place the crimp bead into the back notch.
Squish the crimp bead.
Turn the bead a quarter turn and place the crimp bead in the front notch.
Gently squish the crimp bead. This will fold the crimped bead over on itself.
Use the wire cutter to cut off the small tail of the Soft Flex.
Once one end of your piece of jewelry is completed, string your beads onto the Soft Flex.
When you have finished stringing all of your beads, use the same crimping technique on the other end of the wire to finish the piece of jewelry.
