Findings (metal bits)

Sometimes basic thread is not enough. The following is a list and a brief description of the more common findings used.

These have a small base at the bottom and are ideal for creating hanging drops. Once your feature bead(s) are in place, cut the remaining end to approximately 8mm for the loop. Use your round nose pliers to grip the wire half way down and create a loop for threading. Ensure there are no gaps in the loop or it will fall off your necklace/charm bracelet etc.
These create a neat finish by hiding knots and loose ends. They also provide a small loop to which a fastening can be attached. Calotte crimps can be used on all threads.
Jump Rings
A single ring that is split for opening. These can be attached to the hole in pendants so that they can be threaded and hung correctly.
Crimp Beads

These are tiny ring like beads, which can be pinched closed with flat nose pliers. They are used to secure the ends of thread, monofilament of tiger tail.
Bolt Ring / Spring Ring
These are dainty fastenings, which can be attached to the ends of threads or tiger tail using crimp beads and a jump ring.
Trigger Clasp / Lobster Clasp
These are ideal for heavier necklaces / bag charms etc. Larger jump rings can be used to attach to the other end of your project to form a fastening.
Eye Pins
These are very similar to headpins, but instead of a flat base, they have a small loop at the bottom to add an additional hanging item.
Fish Hook Ear wires
Probably the most popular style of ear wires worldwide. The basic fishhook with ball and coil is used in countless applications. It is attractive, secure and comfortable, even for heavier earrings.
