Alternative Designs Considerations:

Step 8 to Necklace Clasp Showing Soft Flex Wrap TechniqueStep 8:  Continue wrapping the wire around itself.  Complete at least two full wraps of wire.  Three wraps of wire would be better. 

Step 9:  When you have completed the three wraps of wire, release the bead stringing wire from your hemostat.  At this point your wire component should appear as shown below-left. 

Step 10:  Using your flush cutter, cut the excess wire with the flat side of your cutter toward the wrapped loop.  After cutting the wire, grasp the loop with one pair of bent chain nose pliers and twist and squeeze the cut end of wire with a second pair of chain nose pliers, until the cut end lays flat.  See the picture below-center. 

Step 11:  If the beads that you intend to string have a hole that is large enough to accommodate two pieces of bead stringing wire, you won't need to cut the excess bead stringing wire.  If the beads have a smaller hole that won't accommodate two thicknesses of wire, then cut the excess wire as shown below-right.  (Remember, don't cut the wire if you don't need to.  Having the extra wire threaded inside your beads will make the resulting necklace or bracelet stronger.)
