Wire crimpers are an essential tool for beginners, crafters and jewelry designers, and are essential tool for the industry. Also known as crimp pliers, this tool attaches crimp beads, tubes and clasps securely to jewelry ends, keeping everything tightly in place and ensuring that you don’t have to restring your project.
You can buy a wire crimper in a size that suits your project – either micro, standard or maxi. They have to suit the size of the crimp beads or crimp ends that you are working with.
Crimp beads are tiny metal beads that have a thin wall. They aren’t usually decorative but are instead designed to bend as you apply pressure using a wire crimper, locking down the construction points of your jewelry. If the look of the crimp bead or end doesn’t work with your design, there are crimp covers available to disguise this essential fitting. They are available in different sizes and colors to suit your project, and to fit on to different diameters of beading wire or jewelry hooks.
Crimp ends are similar to crimp beads – instead of being in a rounded bead-like shape, these products are more tube-like. They are usually longer than crimp beads and have slightly thicker walls, making them ideal to use when you want your jewelry to last a long time without restringing.
There are a wide range of bead clasps available to add the perfect finishing touch to your bracelet or necklace. These are available for single or multi-strand pieces of jewelry in a variety of metals, designs, styles and colors.
In addition to jewelry hooks, spring ring clasps, toggle clasp, sweater clasps, box clasps, clasp locks, necklace hooks, and ring clasps, you can also find more unusual varieties that make a design statement rather than being purely functional.
