Folks used to enter my store wanting a quick fix.
If a crimp bead was attached using a crimper tool I would have to cut below the crimp to get to the wire. then there was not be enough wire to add a new clasp and I would restring the whole necklace. If the crimp is just flattened, wire tail is tucked into a few beads then I would be able to open the crimp pull out the access wire, change out the clasp or shorten the necklace quickly. I can still cover the crimp with a crimp cover when done.

By accident, I had bought crimp covers and never knew what they were for. Thanks to these wonderfully simple instructions I can now turn many of my first projects into more professional looking pieces of jewellry. Thank you so much for again and again inspiring me! Because of you I know what to do with the money that is left at the end of a month - I spend it with you!
