I really was excited to use these, but found them to be very difficult to "slide" on the end of my loomed piece. I was fearful it was going to ruin all the effort and time I put in to my bracelet, and actually did break a couple of beads trying to manipulate it on. I used size 11 Japanese seed beads, not Miyuki, so maybe that was the problem, but I had to pry open the ends, etc. to get it on. I'm afraid to use them again after that fiasco. They look a little worse for wear after all the prying and trying to squeeze them back into shape with my pliers, not to mention wondering if the threads will hold after all the pulling, etc. It was not a good experience at all! Unfortunately I bought quite a few of them.
I really like this item. I find that my loomed bracelets look more delicate with this. Very good quality and easy to use, but works only for 1 row of 11/0 or 15/0 delica seed beads. If you loom with the Ricks Beading Loom, this item is perfect for your project !
I like the idea of this ending, but found it did not slide onto our seed beads. Wondering if you have one in the same length but a deeper "cup".
