Hi all

A friend has asked me to repair her very much loved bracelet and I don't really have a clue what I am doing so I am seeking advice ...

Its a bracelet with oblong semi precious chippings on it and has 7 strings of them attached to a multi link clasp (I think that's what its called) I can see that the string that the beads were on has worn away and since I have limited tools and materials at the moment I figured I could put it back together on some tigertail wire which I have done but I'm not sure its the best idea?

Also I can't seem to be able to place the crimping bead on so that the stones go all the way to the clasp (so no wire is showing) I am using crimping beads that you just thread on.

Could anybody advise on what is the best string to use for this and how to make the finish better i.e stones to the end and it looking even and nice.

Also how to get each of the seven strings all totally even on the clasp?

I hope this makes sense
