How To: Attach a round leather bead tip for jewelry

Attach a round leather bead tip for jewelry

If you can do a crimp, you can easily do this bead tip attachment. Though meticulous and dexterous, jewelry making isn't as hard as it seems, especially when attaching beads. This demonstration video will help walk you through the process of attaching a round leather bead tip to your jewelry masterpiece.

If you can perform the crimp, you can fix a bead tip to a leather necklace, bracelet, or anklet. Our example uses a Thin Round Leather Strand and two different kinds of Sterling Silver Leather Bead Tips, but it doesn't really matter as long as the leather fits snugly into the opening of the bead tip. You will also need some chain nose pliers.

Attaching the Leather Bead Tip:

In the example, the leather is inserted into the bead tip as far as it will go. Since the bead tip is round to begin with, all you need to do is perform a crimp to flatten it out. Use the midsection of the pliers' teeth to get more leverage in crushing the metal around the leather.
