Gunmetal Crimp End with Loop
This color is very dark and goes well with black, dark grey and dark navy and was the perfect color for the 2MM leather cord I've chosen to use for necklaces and bracelets. They are very easy to attach and hold well. They look great also. Be careful not to squeeze to hard when attaching, just hard enough to clasp whatever you attach it to. I used glue also.
These are the best crimps for leather and cord projects. You never have to worry that the crimp will come loose. I do not like the fold over or spring crimps, It is an unfinished look to me.
Used these to finish 1.5mm round leather for a necklace and they were perfect. Added a JBB 21mm Gunmetal-Plated Brass Swivel S Hook Clasp and had just the look i wanted. So easy! Do use chain nose pliers (rather than a crimper) to "crimp" the center section for a less flattened and more professional look. Although i'm sure i read someone's tip (on another crimp end cap item) that for best results use chain nose pliers, i had to try using a crimper and was not thrilled with the result. Switched to chain nose pliers for the 2nd end and the results were perfect. Now i have to replace 1 end (lol). Just be a bit gentle for a perfect result. I've also been very pleased with the quality of all the JBB items i've used; thank you artbeads for offering JBB at an affordable price.
