  9. 9. Crimping Beads and Tool<br />
  10. 10. GETTING STARTED: Attaching the Hook to the Wire<br />Step 1:<br />Place the crimp bead on the end of the wire about an inch and a half from the tip.<br />Pass wire through the lanyard hook.<br />
  11. 11. GETTING STARTED: Attaching the Hook to the Wire<br />Step 2<br />Fold the wire back.<br />Pass through crimp bead, leaving about an inch as a “tail.”<br />Make sure that the loop attached to the lanyard hook is fairly tight.<br />
  12. 12. GETTING STARTED: Attaching the Hook to the Wire<br />Step 3<br />Flatten the bead with the crimping tool, using the second “W” shaped section of the tool.<br />
  13. 13. GETTING STARTED: Attaching the Hook to the Wire<br />Step 4<br />Turn the bead 90 degrees and crimp again, using the first opening on the tool.<br />
  14. 14. PLANNING ahead<br />Choose beads that you think will go together.<br />Consider color, shape, and texture. Be sure to include some accent beads and plenty of smaller, seed beads.<br />Visualize how they will look together and experiment with various combinations. Here is an example of how the beads on the left might go together.<br />
  15. 15. Style consideration<br />Think about whether you want a central bead above the lanyard hook or two separate strands meeting.<br />
  16. 16. Neck line advice<br />Decide if you want to use smaller, lighter beads on the neckline, or if your general pattern will continue all the way around.<br />
  17. 17. SYMMETRICAL OR NOT?<br />Some people like to make the left and right side of their lanyard match exactly. (If so, you may need to reverse your pattern on the second side). <br />Others prefer only approximate symmetry;<br />Asymmetry is another popular choice.<br />
  18. 18. CHOOSE AT LEAST ONE GREEN BEADAll of Erin’s Dream Lanyards have a green bead as“A Touch of Erin”<br />
  19. 19. MISTAKES TO AVOID<br />All big beads: too heavy<br />All small beads: will take a long time to complete<br />Plan both sides, so you don’t run out of the beads. You may not want to use seven on one side if you only have twelve. <br />
  20. 20. MISTAKES TO AVOID<br />Tuck the double strand of wire into your beads when you are starting so they don’t poke the wearer.<br />Leave between an inch and two inches of wire at the end so that the finisher has enough wire to work with.<br />
  21. 21. MISTAKES TO AVOID<br />Tape the end as soon as you finish so you don’t spill your beads. <br />Remember, you must return your leftovers to the bead table when you’re done.<br />
  22. 22. FINISHING: Attaching the Wire Back to the Lanyard Hook<br />Step 1<br />Thread the wire through the final bead (if that is the style you have chosen).<br />Place a crimp bed on the wire.<br />
  23. 23. FINISHING: Attaching the Wire Back to the Lanyard Hook<br />Step 2<br />Fold the wire back.<br />Pass through crimp bead, leaving about an inch as a “tail.”<br />Make sure that the loop attached to the lanyard hook is fairly tight.<br />
  24. 24. GETTING STARTED: Attaching the Hook to the Wire <br />Step 3<br />Flatten the bead with the crimping tool, using the second “W” shaped section of the tool.<br />Step 4<br />Turn the bead 90 degrees and crimp again, using the first opening on the tool.<br />
  25. 25. GETTING STARTED: Attaching the Hook to the Wire <br />Step 5<br />Thread wire back through beads for an inch or so.<br />Pull tight.<br />Carefully trim any excess wire.<br />
