Jewelry FAQ : Crimp Ends
Q: What are crimp ends for?
A: Crimp Ends are for ending designs that are not very heavy. To make sure it stays on, we recommend that you glue and crimp it. To do this, put a drop of GS-Hypo in the crimp end. Put your stringing material in it, and crimp it. Most crimp ends will not do a folded crimp nicely, so the best way to crimp them is to mash them flat with a pair of flat or chain nosed pliers. Also, some crimp ends are only designed to be crimped in the middle. Once your crimp end is secure, use a jump ring to attach a clasp to the loop and you're done!
