Jewelry FAQ : Crimp vs. Regular Bead
Q: What is the difference between a crimp bead and a regular bead?
A: Actually, there is no difference between a crimp bead and a regular bead. A crimp bead is just a small hollow seamless bead. In fact, our 1.8mm crimp bead comes to us as a 1.8mm seamless round bead. Our 2mm and 2.5mm seamless round beads can double as crimp beads in a pinch, as can liquid silver in some cases.
