Topics: Finishing Silk Thread

Q.
If I am making a necklace with silk thread, do I make a knot at the end using a tube crimp and then crimp the tube or just leave it?

Crimps are not recommended for use with silk as the metal will wear through the thread over time. The knot will secure your design. If you'd like to add a finding to hide the knot, choose a bead tip that fits the style of your overall design.
