This sterling silver pinch end cap features an open swirls design; ideal for securing jewelry designs made with fabric or textiles—leather, elastic, ribbon. Simply pinch the cap onto the fabric to secure it in place; tiny nibs inside the cap help hold the material firmly. If desired, use jeweler's epoxy to ensure a strong, permanent grip. End caps cover cut wire or cord ends to provide a quick and tidy, professional finish for designs made with these materials. Attach your clasp or additional design elements to the ring on the end cap.
• Cap width should be equal to or slightly smaller than strand width.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
