These bead-crimping pliers provide expert and efficient crimping, creating secure, smoothly rounded crimps for a smooth, professional look. Crimping pliers are ideal for neatly and smoothly closing crimp tubes and beads without creating the sharp, unattractive edges that regular pliers can leave. Use these pliers for 2–3mm beads; the final crimps are suitable as floating spacers on Beadalon® or Illusion Cord and can be hidden in a barrel clasp or clamp-style bead tip. To use, first position the crimp tube or bead in the jaws and crease it into an oval, then shape and finish. These pliers are made of hardened tool steel, a very hard, strong material; the jaws will not be nicked or deformed with normal use.
• These pliers have a lap joint; one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a pivot is set through both halves.
• The handles are covered with flexible PVC for comfort.
