Crimp Beads and Crimp Tubes
Crimp beads and crimp tubes are just two ways to hold a clasp on the end of youe necklace or bracelet. Crimps are one of two ways of spacing and holding beads along the length of your jewellery if you are making a spacer necklace. Crimp beads and crimp tubes can also be used as spacer beads holding larger beads away from each other to avoid breaking and scratching. If you don't like the look of the crimped crimp bead then you can always use a crimp cover which hides the crimp bead.
