I have found a new use for these crimp beads. I wanted to make a bracelet with 1mm cord and tube beads.I passed the cords by weaving in and out of the tubes. These were the perfect size for my project. I used 4mm ribbon ends to finish the bracelet. It turned out very nice.
I was looking for a crimp bead which I could get a double chain through for earrings. This works well but is a little too long. 2x3mm would be perfect.
heavy is great, use always in bracelets now
I love these crimp beads, and the crimp covers, and the mighty crimper. I found I quite like the beadalon 49. These heavy crimps are perfect with it. I have made many bracelets, I have even taken older bracelets apart and refinished them with crimping.
I like to put a larger hole silver bead next to the crimp's crimp cover - makes the bracelets look very finished.
I have purchased more. Great product!
Good product. However, wish there would be a crimp tube with a 2.5 mm opening. This crimp tube is a little large when using heavy accuflex wire and I am sometimes worried about it holding.Therefore I use 2 crimp tubes on each end of the necklace to make it more secure,
