Crimps, cord, ring, and lobster


You can locate the crimps, clasps and rings in the findings pages.

Crimped Ring

  1. Measure enough cord for your bead project. Allow about 4 inches extra to crimp the ends and finish the project

  2. Place a crimp and a ring onto the cord. Snug the loop to the ring but don't pull the loop too tight. A little space lets the ring move freely.

  3. String the beads on the cord and adjust your pattern to the correct length.

  4. Place a crimp and lobster onto the end of the cord. Feed the cord back through the crimp and the last few beads. Pull the loose end of the cord to remove the slack but don't make the loop too tight.

  5. "Smush" the crimp with the pliers. Be sure you test that the crimp is secure. You may need to tighten it a little.

  6. Use the cutter to trim the loose end of the wire between the beads. Enjoy!

Ready to Finish the last crimp

Perfect crimp job
