Center crimp end pieces are an easy way to cleanly finish the ends of leather, ribbon, and other jewelry cord when you're making necklaces and bracelets. Choose from a variety of plated brass options, plus raw (unplated) brass, which provides a lush, warm hue in artisan jewelry that's similar to gold - but at a much friendlier price. You can polish raw brass to a bright and shiny finish, or oxidize it if you want a distressed (antiqued) look.
To use, simply add a dab of glue to the end of your cord, slide on the center crimp, and flatten the center section with round-nose pliers. Pair up one center crimp with loop, and one center crimp with hook to create a full hook and eye clasp. Or, use two center crimps with loop (one on each end of your cord), then add any clasp of your choice.
