I use these a lot to crimp 3mm braided leather. The leather slips in easily and I always add new super glue to the ends before crimping to make it secure. The finish is nice and the x's and o's add a little something extra.
Pretty but not what I expected
Since the outer dimensions are not indicated on the description page, I had to guess that it would fit my 4 mm large hole beads. They did not. They are very pretty and delicate in design. Maybe they would work for another purpose.
JBB 3.5mm Antique Sterling Silver Fancy Crimp End Cap
Perfect for my application
I LOVE THE LITTLE XOXO PATTERN ON THIS CRIMP END. I USE THIS SIZE FOR BOTH ENDS OF MY 3MM BRAIDED LEATHER THEN ADD A SPRING RING & LOBSTER OR TRIGGER CLASP FOR EXTRA SECURITY. JUST BE SURE TO ADD A TINY TOUCH OF GLUE (I USE GS HYPO CEMENT) INSERT LEATHER & GENTLY PINCH BOTH SIDES. YOUR CRIMP WILL BE VERY SECURE ONCE THE GLUE SETS.
