Magic Finding Inquiries
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:05:02 AM »
Has anyone used or currently uses a crimp called Magic Finding?


I found this while looking though a supply site yesterday. The Magic Finding is a special crimp bead for multi strand (up to seven) projects. Here is the link -http://www.themagicfinding.com/index.html


Interesting, but you must use special pliers, and the Omega Inserts (goes with the magic finding). Price for the pliers is 30.00, Price for findings range 5.00 ? 10.00, and the Omega Inserts range 1.80 ? 4.50 (prices from Rio Grande)


If anyone has any remarks or thoughts about this crimp bead I would love to hear about it.
Thanks!

Isn't that a bit expensive if doing things for resale?


Hi Lisa, Not for resale… I am interested in using it for a 5 strand bracelet and wanted to know how others liked it. But, having to use only their findings and crimper is a bit costly… however if  it works… it’s an alternative finding for me.

I agree that it is pretty cool. Seems to eliminate the need for a crimp cover. I think I would be concerned about all those strands with just a single crimp to hold it all together, especially if it's a little heavy. Cost prohibitive for me. Maybe when I hit the "big time"!  ;D
