The first thing that you need to do is to choose the beads. You can easily find many kinds of beads from a bead store or craft store. The beads are commonly available in precious glass, metals, plastic, gems, and wood. If you want to make your own beads, you can use paper or clay.
The second thing that you have to do is to make your design for the necklace you want to make on the piece of paper. You need to make sure that the design is simple enough to be made.
The third thing is to cut the bead wire. You are going to cut it about 5 inches longer than you require the actual necklace to be. If you want to make short necklace, you will need approximately 20 inches wire.
The fourth thing that you need to do in making handmade jewelry is to attach one end of the clasp to the bead wire. It is required to slide the crimp bead and a clasp piece onto the wire. After that, you have to slide the end of the necklace wire back through the crimp bead. You can use the crimping tool for flattening the crimp bead so that it can stay in the place.
The next thing is to slide the beads onto what it is called soft-flex wire. This wire is solid enough to allow you in beading the necklace without using a needle.
Finally, you have to attach the final clasp to your necklace. You are going to have one left clasp to add your necklace. You need to slide the crimp wire once again onto your necklace, and then onto the clasp piece. Moreover, you need to pull back the end of the wire through the crimp bead, and then pull the wire until your necklace is snug. You have to make sure that there is no space between the beads. For the final step, you need to crimp the bead by using the pliers, and the excess wire should be trimmed.
