4. Thread 1 crimp bead and the round part of your toggle clasp.  Thread the wire back    through the crimp bead after going through the loop on the toggle clasp.  Thread the wire through several beads (see illustration 2).  Using your pliers, squeeze the crimp bead about a 1/4th of an inch away from the clasp and an 1/8th of inch away from the last bead to have room for your crimp cover.  Trim the excess wire as close to the bead as you can.
