Recommended for 2mm x 2mm crimps
Magical Crimping Pliers have a single rounding hole. This limits the pliers to 2x2mm crimps. But you can explore different diameters. If you are finishing a single strand necklace, we suggest using .019 Medium or .024 Heavy Soft Flex beading wire. You can also use Magical Crimping Pliers on multi-strand necklaces using finer diameters.
Magical Crimping Pliers are the next generation of crimping tools. If you use crimp covers to conceal a finished crimp, you will love Magical Crimping Pliers. Magical Crimping Pliers will turn an ordinary crimp tube into a finished, rounded, bead. A beautiful end to any design.
Here is the secret: regular crimping pliers have two holes, a crimping hole to place a divot in the crimp and a rounding hole to finish. Magical Crimping Pliers have a single rounding hole. This hole rounds any 2x2mm tube into a rounded bead. This quick rounding method eliminates the need for a crimp cover.
Magical Crimping Pliers are for beginner beaders and seasoned artists alike. Easy to learn and quick to master. At Soft Flex Company, we always suggest using high quality wire and crimps, such as our Soft Flex Wire and our crimps (which are seamless and thick-walled). Choosing a budget wire and crimps might not have the same strength and finish.
These are simply great to have. They make the jewelry look so well made. Easy to grasp as well.
Really works well. Just follow directions, and use 2x2 crimps.
Have to say it took me a little while to get these to always make a perfect little bead, but they are also useful if you like to put crimp covers on your crimps, they hold them nice and steady on their broad tips. This is my second pair I grabbed the old pair thinking it was something else and put a burr on it. Still works, but sometimes the burr grabs the crimp and I have to kind of pull it out, so time for a new pair!
