Q: How do I avoid the scraps flying here and there when I cut the ends of the wires?
A: when you are about to cut the wire,rest the index finger of your non-dominant hand at the tip of the wire,as if you're poking your finger with the wire(but don't really poke because it will hurt!), and then cut it.The scrap will hit your index finger and fall straight down, and you can collect it. If you cut the wire right above a beading tray or a container, the scrap(wire end) will fall straight into it.
it's a good habit to collect left over wire ends because they can be dangerous if they are everywhere in the house. :)
