Use a bead cap to create a professional look on bead dangles and strung jewelry designs. Tammy Honaman, expert jewelry maker, shows how to secure a bead cap on top of beads using a headpin and simple loop jewelry-making technique.


Bead caps are a great professional quality finish for a bead dangle and provide a nice transition from bead to headpin.

String onto a headpin: one bead and one bead cap (concave side first) then form a simple loop.
