Todays tip still concerns crimp beads. A little trick that I use to lock in my ends so they don't come apart is this: I use 2 crimp beads with one swarovski crysl bead between the them. You then thread your stringing wire back through all 3 pieces and crimp. Virtually locks in your ends so they will not come apart!!!
This particular pictures shows where I used 2 crimps and 1 sterling silver bead to lock it in.
