Description

Clamshell bead tip ends - also called calottes - are a nice finishing touch - and are often seen on traditional knotted pearl strands, but are useful anywhere you need to attach a small, sturdy loop.

To use, pass the thread through the hole in the middle back of the "clam" from the outside of the clam, and make a knot inside big enough to not pull back through the hole. If this is a challenge, tie a knot around a small bead that will fit inside the clam. Then, fold the "clam" shut using your pliers. Then you can use the loop to attach to a clasp - or whatever you want, just add the clasp etc and curl the loop closed with your pliers.

This is a medium silvertone colour.

Lead-free. Nickel-free. By the pack of 20.

Findings are all those little bits that you need to make up your jewellery - other than the beads themselves! Here, we present the basic earring pieces - hooks, frames, etc. in silver- and gold- coloured.

As nickel allergies are becoming more common - we have noted Nickel where we are aware of it.

Silver and Antiqued Silver beads are plated, over another metal such as copper or brass. They are coated to prevent tarnishing and need no polishing or maintenance.
