wire is used to cover the thread as it enters the clasp. This prevents thread from wearing away, keeping your jewellery pieces protected and giving them a clean, tidy finish. We sell gimp wire in a range of colours, so you can choose the shade that blends in with your design.
To use gimp wire to its full effect, string all of your beads on the thread before adding crimp. Slip a small piece of gimp wire onto the string, then thread through the loop of your clasp. Bring this back through the clasp, and then close tightly with pliers.
