CRIMP BEADS AND TUBES
Use Crimp Beads or Tubes to finish off Tigertail or Soft-Flex wire projects. Flatten the crimp bead with chain-nose pliers or crimping pliers . We most often use the 2mm round crimp or 2mm tube crimp. Available in silver-plate, gold-plate, nickel-plate, black, gunmetal, copper, brass oxidized (dull), sterling silver and gold-filled.
Use Crimp Bead Covers to hide the crushed crimp beads. Simply squeeze the cover over the crimp, using a crimping or other pliers. These come in differnt sizes, different metals and finishes, and different textures.
Use Horse Shoes (wire protectors) to hide and protect the cable wire that loops into and around the clasp at the point you crush the cable wire. This also forces you to leave the correct size loop between the crushed crimp and the clasp or ring. Will work with cable wire that is .019" or thinner.
