Crimps, covers, and cord ends are essential beading supplies that will help you bring your jewelry designs together. Crimp tubes and beads are a polished and professional way to finish a strand of jewelry wire, allowing you to securely and easily attach it to a jump ring or other connection point. Crimp covers can be used to hide crimp tubes and make them look like they are part of the design. Bead tips and clamshells are used in a similar manner as crimp covers. They hide knots typically used in pearl jewelry, and also allow you to easily add a clasp to the end of your strand. No matter what you're looking for, all of these findings have a solid reputation for being sturdy and dependable and play an important role in any bead box.
