I found your website on "Pinterest", and have found it so very helpful with tips for jewellery making and all...I am from Australia, am trying to teach myself jewellery making, your site is more informative and helpful with guidance, correct tools, correct wire, crimps etc.. Thank you so very much cheers Rob
Mighty is right. Love this for the larger crimps and closing crimp covers.
clasps, silver vs sterling, sizes
Artbeads' recommendations and instructions are very valuable and very helpful. I called to get sizes from mm to inches and one young girl was very confused, hopefully, we did get straightened out and both of us agreeded on the size of lobster clasps to order. I have not received them yet but our interpretations of 6 to 25 mm. varied to 1/2 to and 1 inch size long.???? lets see.
The mighty crimper is the tool you MUST have if you are using heavy guarge beading wire and #4 crimp tubes. A normal crimping pliers is too small to close the larger crimp tube. The Mighty crimper works great.
