How to use coil crimps
Coil crimps are mostly used for leather cords, suede cords, waxed linen cords, thick hemp cords and ribbons. There are different sizes, so make sure you choose the right size for the cord you are using.
Insert the cord into the crimp.
Use your pliers to flatten the first coil (ring). Release your pliers and pull the cord slightly to ensure that it is securely in place. If not, press it tighter until it is secure.
The flattened first coil will look like this.
You can finish off your piece by attaching a clasp to one end of your necklace, and a jump ring to the other end.
