MATERIALS: – Poker chip – Clasp – Drill – 2 crimp beads – Beading wire (We used Beadalon, the 49-strand variety, 9/10 in. ) – Crimping pliers (These are special pliers available at bead shops. ) Step 4: Feed both ends of the wire through a bead. 6 Add a crimp bead to the right half of the wire. 7 Feed the right end of the wire through the loop on your clasp, back through the crimp bead, and through the last bead or two that you added. Tug the excess beading wire with your needle nose pliers to tighten the loop created with the wire—the goal being to have as little space as possible between the last bead of your piece and the crimp bead, and to have just enough space between the crimp bead and the clasp so that the clasp has a bit of wiggle room.
