They’re small, sometimes fiddly, but these little, rubberized beads are incredibly helpful in making snug designs that have movement. Originally designed to mimic the look of knots between pearls, the Bead Bumpers do that and oh, so much more!
Some of my favorite things about Bead Bumpers:
2. They take up the slack when you are adding a Magnetic Tube Clasp to finish your memory wire. You’ll need a little extra room to get the loop turned over and hidden in the clasp. Use a Square Bead Bumper on each end, and they’ll squeeze and release to minimize the exposed wire.
3. We all know that we should leave some “wiggle room” in our designs to minimize the beads from rubbing against the wire, but who likes exposed wire at the ends of our designs? Here’s where Bead Bumpers really shine. Add a few on each end, and their elastic properties will allow you to build in the “wiggle room” without the wire gaps.
