I would like to admit that I've never lost a strand of beads while beading but thats is in no way true. I kept meaning to get a stop or end for beads while at the store but always seemed to forget. I got into my boyfriend's springs and there they were. A spring with loops on the end. I figured why not make my own.
Plastic Dip, Sugru, or Clay
**You can get the springs at the hardware store. We happened to have a box that contained a bunch of different sizes.
Step 1: Add Mini Handles to Spring
Take a small piece of your plastic dip, sugru, or clay and roll it into a ball. Then place it on the end of the spring and mold it around the loops. Let it Dry.
Step 2: Save Yourself From "OHHH NOOO!"
Fold your spring back, insert your wire or string and get beading! This is a very simple way to keep your headaches down!.
