Sterling Silver 2 x 2mm Crimp Tube - HEAVY
These sterling silver crimp tubes have a thicker wall, making them a bit heavier and more sturdy than a regular crimp tube. Perfect for heavier beads and bold designs. For more information on how to use a crimp tube, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. For this size crimp tube, we recommend using the Bead Crimper Tool.

Standard in QualityNovember 8, 2014
These crimp beads are solid and seamless. Because of their thickness they are easy to use and bend where expected. I want my prayer beads to last more than one generation, and these crimp tubes help guarantee this.

My go-to crimpFebruary 5, 2014
This is the crimp that I use the most. It's excellent quality, and works the best with the crimp tool. The 3mm covers work the best with these tubes. They are a bit heavier than the other 2 x 2mm, and I think they both work about the same, but just in case, I use the heavier one. In the long run, it may be worth the extra cost to use the heavier crimp.

Stronger for heavier beadsSeptember 28, 2013
If you are making a necklace or bracelet with heavier beads, such as gemstones, the lighter weight crimp tubes are not strong enough. These crimp beads are much sturdier and will protect your design better.

Great staplesMarch 10, 2013
These are great staples for heavier pieces. However, take care in crimping them. Make sure you crimp them securely. Since they are heavy duty, it does take a bit more to securely crimp them.

The best crimps.August 29, 2011
When I do crimped pieces I use a magic crimper. These are the only type of crimp that works properly with this tool.

My everyday crimpApril 16, 2011
Great size, I have never lost a project due to crimp failure while using this crimp. This is one of those little things that you shouldn't cut costs on, I know there are cheaper (thinner) crimps available, but having to redo a project because of a crimp failing is not acceptable to me. The longer length leaves an excellent finished crimp that only requires a cover if you want that extra finish, this crimp stands on it's own.

Heavy Duty Crimp TubesJanuary 17, 2011

Finally a Crimp Bead that Works!October 29, 2010
I have used several different kinds of crimp tube beads over the years and it seems like the quality has been diminishing. There is a particular brand that is often found in craft stores that I have become so frustrated with because the quality is so poor; I have had to re-do so many projects because this crimp tube is so low in quality. These heavier metal crimp tubes are worth every cent and thankfully, I have no more frustration!

The better buyOctober 28, 2010
It is very easy to confuse these with the regular weight tubes. If you need a 2x2, use these heavy ones. For lighter items use the shorter tubes.

best of crimpsAugust 6, 2010
This is my most favorite of crimps. Not only a more secure hold but easier to use, never breaks or shatters, worth a little extra cost.

This product is a godsendMarch 29, 2010
I will never use any other 2x2 sterling crimp tube. These heavy crimps are so much easier to use with fine gauge wire, and work just as well with stronger wire. Not only do you know that they are durable, but with the finer wire there is no more slipping, wasted crimps or wire from having to re-do. I am so glad I found these heavy crimp tubes at Artbeads!

I have switched to heavy crimps for all my projects. I have not had any of my beading wires slip through these heavy crimps as the regular sized ones do.

Nice weightApril 20, 2007
This tube has a nice weight but is a little too thick if you use more than one wire in the crimp tube, depending on the gauge of wire.

Excellent Crimp Tubes!November 29, 2006
When I first started beading, I had so much trouble crimping. I couldn't get the crimps I was using squished into the correct shape, or they wouldn't hold tightly. Once I bought Artbeads heavy crimps, I had absolutely no more trouble. They are an awesome product. I never buy any other type of crimp tubes!
