How to use a box crimp
Box crimps are also called fold over crimps. They are mostly used for thick cords like leather and suede cords.
Insert the cord into the box or fold over crimp.
Use your pliers to fold one side onto the cord.
Do exactly the same with the other side. The sides might overlap a bit. Release your pliers and pull the cord to make sure it is securely in place.
You can finish off your piece by attaching a clasp to one end of your necklace, and a jump ring to the other end.
