Crimp Beads

  • Crimp beads are special beads that become flattened when squeezed with pliers. They're great for holding ends together or as spacers. To use, place the bead exactly where you want it, then use flat nose pliers to squeeze it. There are special crimp pliers on the market which will close the crimp more securely and round the bead, smoothing sharp edges often left by simply using flat nose pliers.
