Web Link Published 3/20/18 Last updated on 2/28/20

This tutorial details how to start a wire necklace by using a crimp bead. I created this tutorial and posted it on the Instructables Web site:

Although this tutorial does not focus on the use of Adobe products, I did use Photoshop to edit the pictures of me doing the demonstration with the wire and beads.
