  • Finnishing beaded thread

    Ive never really used thread to bead necklaces ect,(usually wire and crimps) but have recently shortened a pearl necklace for my mother.
    The thread was finnished with a kind of clasp that holds and covers the knot...its probably very simple.. but i don't know what they are called
    and any ideas where i get them??


    thanks in advance Susan x

    Sounds like its a callotte - you can get them from most places that sell findings.

      Yes, it does sound like a calotte. I got some once from my local beading shop, but I would have thought you get them in most paces that do findings.

        If I ever make anything good enough to sell, I'll want to keep it!
