How do you string beads on a stretch cord?

What is beaded wire?

Beading wire is actually a bundle of fine strands of stainless steel wires, all encased in a nylon coating. Beading Wire is the best wire to use for most bead stringing projects. (It’s best to use silk cord and synthetics for stringing pearls and other beads that require knotting, rather than for bead stringing.)

How do you use beading wire?

Use your crimping pliers to crimp down the bead and then trim off the excess wire tail. String your beads onto the wire and then place the second crimp bead against the last bead. Make a loop, crimp the bead and then cut off the tail. Finally, attach the end findings and clasp.
