These aren't seen often TRIANGULAR connectors (save 66%)
$3.00 On sale
Triangle connectors are what you use for beads that have a hole through their top. For example, a teardrop bead, or maybe an octagon shape. There may be a use for them in other crafts, but I'm a beader so I don't really know if they would be useful for other projects. Let me know if you think they are!!
You may, or may not, need to open the 'jaws' a bit wider on some styles, in order to press them into the hole of the bead. Use 2 pairs of flat pliers, if you can. One on either side of the triangle's sides, and pull them apart more. Then you can usually squeeze them into the hole of the bead with your fingers. Tighten if you feel it's necessary, with pliers by giving the closed triangle a bit of a squeeze.
So as an example, you may have a Swarovski Flower Pendant that has a hole to the side of the bead. Use the triangle connector to hang the pendant, then simply thread a chain or cord through the connector, and your bead is facing the right way! Looks better than a big O ring poking out.
I was just about to repack these into clean bags, because they are (surprise surprise - not) still to be reorganised since our warehouse move (yes, 3 years ago - well there is a real lot to go through here, and we have to fit it in between our usual day to day business LOL). So I thought aha Musthavecrafters might just LOVE these. They are very handy in the right place.
The packet labels actually call them Triangle Jumprings, but I kind of thought that was a bit weird seeing they aren't round rings, so I'm calling them connectors from now on. Similar items that are a lot fancier, but do this type of job, are often called 'bails'.
Even though these are hard to find items, I'm knocking 66% off the packs, so enjoy!
Remember - the dust is free on these.
