Sterling silver bead tips add a professional looking finish to your stringing projects. Bead tips work great with both beading wire and bead cords. Simply knot or crimp the end of your stringing material and position the cup over the knot, be sure the knot is big enough to not slip though the hole. Close the cup with chain nose pliers and close the arm around your jump/ split ring or your clasp. You may want to secure the bead tip to the knot with G-S Hypo Cement.
