Maryfrances. When you pull to tighten, do you try to have the "dip"
of the butterfly cinch (the first cinch), go down in between the two
wires? If you try to do that, and then also do an extra squeeze over
the finished crip, so it’s flat, you will never get any necklaces
back. A crimp cap will make this triple crimped unit look nice. Also,
it helps if you use least number of stranded wire with lighter beads
and the heaviest 49strand wire with heavier necklaces. I assume you
already know that!
Have fun designing,
