NOT A FANJuly 18, 2016
Great concept, not the best delivery. The pliers I received didn't quite seem to close enough. I never was able to get the bead small or round enough, no matter how many times I repeated. The learning curve on this is so high, that I lost too much time trying - and wasting too many Magic beads and crimp covers. I also had to restring a project after losing too much of the wire in failed attempts. Returning

Another use for Magic Finding PliersDecember 22, 2015
I love this tool. It also works well on good quality 4mm crimp covers, it can even help save one you've made a mess of and may prevent re-stringing. You join your crimp then turn it it the front indents.Repeat using the back indents which are a little smaller and you have a perfect crimp cover which looks like a perfect bead. I also use for their original purpose as well. Fantastic tool. I wouldn't be without it! A great investment for a professional finish.

VERY GOODSeptember 4, 2012
These are the best. I could tell the difference as soon as I tried them. I had bought a set of pliers that were supposed to work for "Magic Findings", but didn't, from another site. I ruined several findings trying to get it to work. Then I bought these, and I'll never get the others again! They worked right the first time, and I was able to finish my project with no problems.

Incredible multi strand dividerJuly 18, 2012
This tool and its findings make great clean and secure multi strand designs with the Magic Finding.
It took me a little bit to perfect the technique on how to use the Omega Insert, but once i figured it out it also worked well as a conector... The key to using the Omega Insert is to always press and hold the insert inwards when you crimp, so that it does not slip out.

Steep learning curveMay 12, 2012
This is such a great idea but it's really hard to use. The "legs" of the omega insert just barely go through the finding, so they pop out really easily as you're crimping. What that usually means is you have to cut your piece apart and start all over again with new findings and new omega inserts.
This probably works very well if you don't use the omega insert, because the finding does hold the stringing material very tightly and the crimped finding looks really nice. But after having to restring several pieces to get it to work right with the omega insert, I've given up on using it.

Very useful system!!! Pretty too.November 17, 2011
I really like the Magic Finding. I read about it in a magazine and was excited - I had been looking for something like this to make multi-stranding easier. The crimp takes many strands and holds them in place. Then when you actually crimp it, it ends up looking like a simple ball shaped bead. And the inserts look cleaner than a wire guard in terms of design. Bravo to whoever came up with this idea!
