The Beadsmith Magical Tube Crimp Beads in an assorted pack. There are 125 of each finish in the following colours - black oxide, copper, gold, and silver - approximately 500 pieces in total. These uniform cylindrical shaped crimps have no sharp edges.
Crimp beads are designed to secure the ends of jewellery stringing wires. These particular beads work perfectly with the Magical Crimp Forming Tool.
Because the inside of a crimp tube tends to be more spacious, they can be better at gripping beading wire, providing a more secure crimp. Using a Magical Crimp Forming Tool provides a more aesthetically pleasing finish, creating a ball from the crimp bead.
Tube Crimps are generally made of soft metal and designed to secure clasps onto jewellery making wire. They work well to finish a piece and blend it with the finished design.
Though frequently used by designers, beginners will also benefit from their simplicity. Slide the beading wire through a crimp, then loop through your clasp or jump ring. Slide it back through and use a flat nose or crimping plier to lock in place!
These 2mm crimp beads are ideal for medium .019 wires.
