Fantastic crimp tubes

by Angela| 3/3/2016 0:00:00

I have been using the Beadalon tubes for years now on illusion necklaces (the size 1) and on stretch bracelets (size 2 and 3), they are the best. I found I had a lot of cord cutting using round crimps so I switched to tubes and rarely have that issue anymore. I have found a trick to get the most secure hold - use the smallest size you can and when making stretch bracelets knot one end, add your crimp and as the final step stretch the cord at the starting end over your finger to elongate it and make it thinner, then pass the end of the stretch cord through. Pull it snug (then check you still have some slack in the bracelet) and crimp the doubled cord. Trim the free ends with a sharp flush cutter. This makes a nice tight crimp that will never come out. I have learned one more thing - do not crimp down really hard, this can create a sharp edge and cut the cord right off the bat. Happy beading !
