Findings – Make a Crimp

Findings – Make a Crimp

This project shows you how to adapt jump ring finding into a crimp suitable for different projects. This is a great tip!

What you need

Jump rings 5 or 8 mm


This is more a tip than a project. Hope everyone finds it useful.

I was having trouble finding crimps large enough to fit the braided Hemp cord necklaces I was making for my sons.

Tried a 8 mm jump ring, putting it on like a normal crimp, and then overlapping the ends and squeezing it flat like a crimp.

Worked great!
