When finishing off a project using Accu-Flex® beading wire, is it better to use bead tips, end caps, crimp tubes w/loops, or cord ends? I'd like to have a loop to hook the clasp to, but I don't like how it looks when the wire loop shows.
Crimp beads, crimp tubes with loops or crimp tubes with hooks are the best way to finish jewelry strung on Accu-Flex beading wire as they offer a professional and secure finish.
If you choose to use crimp beads, Accu-Guard™ wire wire protectors are a great solution and hide the loop of wire that shows between the crimp and the clasp loop. They also protect the beading wire from abrading against the clasp loop.
If you choose to use crimp tubes with loops, paired with a crimp tube with a hook, there is no need to hide the wire because the beading wire slides right into the crimping area and is completely concealed.
