String a crimp bead onto flexible wire. String clasp or ring and pass tail of flexible wire back through crimp to form a loop.
Hold wires parallel and make sure crimp is positioned correctly. Using front slot on plier, shape crimp into a small oval.
Put oval into back slot of plier and squeeze to make fold in the center with one wire on each side of fold.
Return to front slot, and squeeze again to tighten crimp. Do a few more rotations and squeezes to solidify and shape crimp bead. Trim wire tail.
