My dilemma this time was looking for a two inch 24-gauge head pin to attach the bead cap to a Kumihimo necklace. I had to resort to the craft wire. Other gauges would work, but I prefer size 24 gauge wire; it is not too thin nor too thick to bend and wrap. Sometimes, the alternative works out better. I now prefer attaching the bead cap this way since it doesn't pull and tug the bead like my other tutorial.
|Step 1: Cut about 3 inches of wire.|
|Step 2: Insert the wire in the middle of the braid as close to the beads as possible.|
|Step 3: Trim the extra threads. Bend the wire upward.|
|Step 4: Wrap the wire around the braid a couple of times. Insert the bead cap and make a wrapped loop.|
