Hi-I have watched your crimping video but still have a question. When I use crimp beads & the tool that crimps them, I always feel like its not super secure. I try to kinda pull at it to see if its securely in place but it almost always moves (the crimped bead AFTER being crimped)...so I always put a few dabs of G-S hypo cement around the crimp & try to get some down in the surrounding beads. What could I be doing wrong that the crimped beads can move when they should be stationary on the bead stringing wire? I can’t possibly squeeze the little tool any harder! I make sure to use the correct size bead crimper! I just don’t know what the problem is!!!!

Laurie E great question! This is something a lot of people struggle with! Make sure your first contact with the crimp is not anywhere in those little grooves. You want a perfectly flat, even gold metal square after your first step. No rough edges or open areas where the wire can pull straight out. If you are having trouble obtaining this, it’s probably best to use a flat, chain-nosed pliers and squeeze the crimp firmly rather than using crimping pliers. One other thing to consider- base metal and plated crimps are not always your friend. They can be flimsy and come undone easily. Sterling and gold filled crimp tubes are not much more $$ but make a world of difference. I also recommend “tornado crimps” for folks who are having trouble. It’s a super heavy duty crimp that requires simple flattening.
