Bead Tips & Clamshells

Bead tips and clamshells are used to join thread to a clasp, and are easy to use. They're great for use with silk because they make strong, streamlined finished jewelry. They are often used at the end of knotted pearl jewelry, as they hide the knot at the end of the strand beautifully and reflect an artisan's attention to detail. They make attaching jump rings or a clasp at the end of a strand a breeze. Use these components for necklace strands that are beautiful from start to finish.
