Approximately 4x3x1mm "cable thimble" sterling silver wire protectors. Don't pinch closed -- the horseshoe design allows for some slack on the cord to reduce stress. Similar to bullion, but sturdier, this preformed channel prevents fraying on stringing cable and cord. It is usually placed where you make a loop to attach the clasp. Inside diameter 0.021", best with 0.014" - 0.015" 19-strand to 49-strand Beadalon® and Soft Flex®.
