How To Finish 'Capture' Bead Chain with Crimp Ends
Capture bead chain is a bead chain 'captured' within a mesh of fine wire. These simple instructions show you how to neatly finish Capture bead chain with crimp ends. Step-by-step instructions are clear and easy.
Using cutters, cut the Capture chain to the desired length.
Insert one end of the chain into a crimp end cap, making sure the chain is centered in the tube end.
Grasp the end cap with flat-nose or chain-nose pliers. Gently squeeze the cap to bring the two sides together. Use a light touch to avoid marring the surface of the end cap. If necessary, reposition the pliers and squeeze again to ensure the cap is completely closed around the chain.
Please note: Delrin® or nylon jaw pliers will help prevent scratching or marring the surface.
If you're adding beads or charms to the chain, slide them onto the chain from the unfinished end.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 to finished the other end of your chain.
Attach the clasp of your choice to the closed end caps to complete your strand.
Your Capture bead chain design is complete and ready to display, ready to sell!
