Jewellery findings are very important for creating your wonderful designs. You will require basic components to get you started including clasps, headpins, jump rings, bails, ring bases, crimps and earring findings to make your piece of jewellery complete and secure. Crimps are small hollow beads which are used to secure beading wire and some cords/threads. Thread them on before your clasp, then feed the wire or cord back down through the crimp and flatten to secure with flat nose or specialist crimping pliers. For a professional finish, you can add crimp bead covers or calottes which are closed over the top of a crushed crimp bead. Crimp bead covers give the illusion of a small round silver bead and calottes have a handy loop attached so you can attach your clasp or jump ring.
If you're making necklaces and bracelets you are sure to find the perfect clasp when you browse our range of plain and decorative lobster, toggle and s-clasps. We have a huge range of jewellery findings from basic components to fancy jewellery findings such as bead caps, filigree and hair accessories in various styles, materials and finishes so you are sure to find the perfect additions for your designs.
