Sterling Silver clam Shell Bead Tip with 2 Rings
These little Sterling clam shell bead tips with 2 rings are great. These are dainty, but sturdy. The 2 rings are small so you need to use about a 20 gauge ring to attach the clam shell bead tip to a clasp. I do recommend these for use, but I would not count on them to hold together if you are using large heavy beads. Best for medium to light weight necklaces.
I use these bead tips for all of my knotted and crocheted necklaces. They look good and are strong enough to hold heavier pendants and clasps.
Finally, a clamshell that can't pull away from the cord or wire! I wish I'd thought of it first. I will be melting down all of my single loop clamshells so I can re-purpose the silver.
Very reasonably priced, works well
Love these for beading and knotting. They are so much better than the Clam shell. Price is reasonable also.
