I am having a problem getting the hang of doing crimp beads and tube

properly. Either I crimp them to tightly to the clasp and they

eventually break, or I clamp down on the crimp bead/tube too hard and

it cuts the beading wire and breaks, and then today a bracelet I made

last night, I made sure to leave enough room for the clasp parts to

move freely but I didn't clamp down on the crimp beads hard enough and

the wire pulled out of it!

It is fustrating because I know it is just a matter of time and

practice to get the hang of it--I've only been doing this a couple of

weeks and took a basic beading class last Thursday--but I was wondering

if there are any tricks any of you may know that I can use to crimping

correctly.

Thanks!

With the amount of people and amazing beaders on this group, that
