Tip: When crimping beads, do not cut off the beading wire right after the crimp bead, instead thread the wire back through 1/4" - 1/2" of strung beads.
This will create a more professional look, prevent a scratchy end from sticking out, and cause the crimp to be more secure.
For a more polished look, cover your crimped bead with a crimp bead cover.
