STERLING BEAD TIPS
Bead tips are used to connect silk, nylon, or thread to a metal finding. They protect softer stringing material from wearing quickly due to abrasion.
To use, thread a bead tip on your cord, tie a knot that will not pass through the hole, secure with a dab of glue to keep the knot in the bead tip. After drying, use your round nose pliers to attach the small hook on the bead tip to your ring or clasp. Bead tips are available in sterling, gold fill, or economy base metal with a plated finish.
