Using Crimp Ends to Finish a Chain

Fine beading chain is ideal for delicate designs, but the tiny links between don't allow for the use of a jump ring. In turn, many have asked, "how do I add a clasp to this?" The answer: a crimp end cap! We'll show you how easy it is to use in just a few short steps.

Insert the chain end into the crimp end cap. Use chain nose pliers to grasp the center band and squeeze the crimp flat. Slide a pendant onto the chain.Repeat this process for the other end with a second crimp end cap.
STEP FOUR
Add a jump ring and a clasp to the loops on the ends of the crimp end caps and you're done! These chain necklaces are simple to create with help from this useful finding.
