4mm Gold-Plated Clam Shell Bead Tip with 2 Rings
I like to use these to finish off the ends when stringing a necklace. I use the beadalon thread and make three knots around a 10/0 seed bead and add glue. The 10/0 seed bead fits nicely when closed in the clam shell. I add a drop of glue on the bead just before I close the clam shell. I add a jump ring on each side through the two rings on the Clam shell. Then I add a clasp to the larger jump ring. Great little Clam Shells. Also works well as ends on fine chain.
These bead tips put a wonderful finished look when using any chain. I will come back for more.
Get it right the first time, these will break in half if you open and close too much. Worked good with a dab of clue around a knotted seed bead to finish a piece. Color seemed a little off (didn't quite match the gold plate clasp) but overall gave a professional look.
I did not like the color of this product, it did not looked metallic and did not go well with gold filled items.
