JBB Gold-Plated Pewter Crimp End Cap with Loop
Good quality & easy to use. I use it to finish leather cords. Remember when crimping only crimp center of end cap. I also use a tiny drop of glue to hold it in place.
I was really happy to fine these and hope Artbeads will still carry them. The size is perfect and not easy to find in this color, quality and price point. They worked very well and looked good in the necklace I made, combined with a shiny brass pendant and the 1.5mm leather cord Artbeads carries. I've used these crimp ends twice now and find they crimp or squish down easily with little pressure. If I use a pulsing motion rather than squeeze hard all at once, the look is more finished and even and the middle section less prone to unsightly separation from the ends. I seldom leave reviews and am very particular about quality and the feedback I've received on this piece from my customers was nothing but positive.
These were useless - if crimped enough to secure the wire, the middle portion breaks away from the end.
I have come to expect much higher quality from Artbeads , and am frankly surprised they still carry them.
