The Magic Finding is a simple and fun way to create multi-strand jewelry designs without the need for countless crimp tubes. Your looks will have the same professional flair and a more polished feel, and you can crimp all of your strands at once! Just follow these steps and you will be amazed at what new designs you will discover. You can attach chains, jump rings, clasps or other components to the Omega Insert in a design that uses the Magic Finding for a quick finish, too. Learn How to Use the Magic Finding with an Omega Insert by viewing our additional tutorial.

First be sure to measure the jewelry wire to the desired length, and double that measurement. For example, if you are making an 18-inch long necklace, cut a piece of wire that is 36 inches. This will allow you to create at least three strands. Make sure to use jewelry wire that will fit in the Magic Finding. Size .024 is too large to slide through the holes, so be sure to use a smaller gauge. 21 gauge is the maximum size stringing wire that will fit through the magic finding. A 22 gauge wire will fit, as long as it is cut flush and the wire is straight.
