4 Craft Ideas Using Crimp Beads

If you are a serious jewelry crafter, you no doubt understand the importance of using crimp beads. These are a must have among your craft supplies. They definitely make life much easier when attempting to put together great jewelry pieces like necklaces, bracelets, and more. Here are five craft ideas that use these beads.


There are many ways to end a necklace and bring the two ends of beading wire together. You can simply the knot the end or use bead tips. These are great solutions, but for the most effective option, use crimp beads. This is the most secure method of finishing your necklace. It also looks much neater giving your final product a more professional appearance. Using these beads for your necklace making is pretty easy too. Once in place, use a set of needle-nose pliers to crush the bead and secure the connection. These beads also come in handy when making and attaching pendants to necklaces.


Another craft idea that can effectively utilize these special beads are beaded bracelets. Once you have the idea for a bracelet, you can start by cutting the beading wire, or whatever stringing material you will be using. It is important to remember to add another inch or so to your measurement to account for your jump ring and clasp. Once your wire is cut, you can begin by adding your crimping bead and then stringing the wire back through. Squeeze it with crimping pliers and you are ready to begin adding your bead design. Once all of your beads have been added, you will add another crimping bead so you can attach your clasp. You end up with a secure, great-looking necklace!


In the designing and making of your own earrings, the using of crimp beads is a must. Whether making beaded earrings or some type of novelty earrings with number or letter beads, the crimping bead is what holds it all together. When you begin making the earrings, you cut your wire and then add the bead. Use your needle-nose, or crimping pliers and squeeze to form the one end of your earring. Complete your design and then attach the ear wire to finish your creation.


Handmade key chains make great gifts for friends and family and are also great for school or community fundraisers. They are easy to make and people of all ages love them. Beaded key chains, like beaded earrings or bracelets, make good use of crimp beads. They can be used at both ends of whatever stringing material you decide to use. After placing the first crimping bead, you can then put on your bead design. When finished, you then attach the keyring. The stringing material, wire usually works best, is wrapped around the keyring and back through the crimping bead. This will give a tight closure and secure all of the beads of the keychain. Your final product will not only look great, but it will be durable and stay together for a long time.
