Topics: Using Bead Caps

Q.
How do I finish beads with bead caps? I love the professional finish the caps bring to the beads but don't know how to use them.

There are many types of bead caps to choose from. Find the ones that suit your beads in style, size and the overall look of your finished design. The size of the bead cap should match, or be larger than, the size of your bead and is usually listed in millimeters. Follow the instructions in our ''Secrets to Using Bead Caps'' how-to video and illustrated instructions on how to make beaded dangles. Use the dangles in a finished bracelet or necklace.


You can also use bead caps to ''frame'' your beads in your strung designs to help set the beads apart from each other.
