Sometimes beadwork calls for getting creative with a solution. This is a cubic raw necklace I wove with gold beads. The core of cubic raw lends itself to an armature and I wanted it to keep a round shape rather then drape where the front pendant was attached.
I used a black cable and pushed it through the center when the beadwork was completed, however no matter how many rows of cubic raw I completed it still had a tendency to slide down and leave 1/2' to an 1' of exposed cable on either side of the threaded clasp.
Aha.....a dot of super glue could keep it in place......um...not a good idea. As careful as I was it spread into the clasp which then of course could no long turn, and the beadwork could not turn, it was kind of a mess. One I wish I had seen coming.
I cut it apart and took the beadwork back down to where it was glue free, and rebeaded from there. Solution this time? I took a metal bead and forced it open wide enough to thread onto the cable by pushing it down onto an awl. I then threaded it onto the cable and squeezed it tight with pliers. Perhaps there is a crimp big enough to do this with, but I didn't have one, so the metal bead did the job. I did this on both sides of the clasp. Then I beaded one additional row up over the stationery metal bead, and put a size 15 between each 11 and pulled tightly closed. Now the bead work stays put and the cable does not show.
