Alternative Designs Considerations:

Step 4 to Necklace Clasp Showing Soft Flex Wrap TechniqueStep 4:  We need to start the wrap of the wire around itself with just a partial wrap.  Don't wrap the wire all the way around until we add the bead stringing wire.  In the picture at right you can see that we wrapped the wire about 135 degrees. 

Step 5:  Now you are ready to add the bead stringing wire.  In the picture below-left you can see that we threaded the bead stringing wire through the loop in the wire and then clamped the wire with a metal hemostat.  (The hemostat shown is our item 4026.) 

Step 6:  We use wraps of wire to permanently hold the bead stringing wire in position.  Performing this next step would be very easy if you have three hands.  For those of you with only two hands, we use gravity and the weight of the metal hemostat to help hold the wire in place while we are wrapping the wire.  To start the wrap, grip the loop with your bent chain nose pliers, holding the pliers in your non-dominant hand.  Holding the bent chain nose pliers and allowing the hemostat to dangle, use the thumb on your dominant hand to push the wire tail.  See the picture below-center for how to hold the wire before you begin pushing the wire. 

Step 7:  After you have completed the first complete wrap of wire the bead stringing wire will be held in place, but not as securely as needed.  See the picture below-right.
