  2. Form a good-sized wrapped loop. Make two pins with loops.

  3. Cut beading wire to the desired length plus 3 inches.

  4. Attach one end of the wire to the loop using a crimp bead or tube.

  5. String on your beads; then attach the other end to the other loop using a crimp.

  6. Make as many strings as you would like, just be sure they will fit within the cone. If you are using large beads, have the string taper down to smaller beads.

I love when I come across a free book loaded with great ideas and it's free. I have been making jewelry for a long time but I still found some new ideas in this book. I can down load it to my iPad and pick out the ones I want to try. Thank you.

I enjoy the tutorials, learning a new skill or a better way to achieve something I thought I knew.

I have not made any multi strand bracelets or necklaces yet but I am glad I came across this tutorial to show me how so when I do make them I will know how to finish the ends. this is a must see for beginners wanting to make these strands so you do not get stuck trying to figure out what to do. These multi strand jewelry are so pretty and I will be making some especially since the holidays are close. Any other way to finish them? I love learning these things. Makes jewelry making a lot simpler.

Love to Lear how,
