Project TypeLearn a Technique

Time to CompleteUnder an hour




  • fold-over crimp cord ends (Determine if the size of your cord ends will fit the cord you are using. I am using 1mm cord ends.)
  • a clasp
  • two jump rings
  • cording (I am actually using ribbon yarn, but you can use any type of cording. I usually like to use hemp, cotton, or leather cording.)
  • two pairs of pliers
  • strong glue like epoxy
  • paper towel
  • toothpicks


  1. Apply a little glue to the crimp cord end. Place the cord in the crimp and fold in one side of the crimp. Carefully fold in the other side of the crimp. (Your fingers will touch the glue, so wash up immediately after you are done.)
  2. Repeat last step for the other side.
  3. Trim excess cording if needed.
  4. Attach the clasp using jump rings.

Well, this old dog just learned a new trick. I have used fold over crimps but never used glue with them. That would really help. Especially if I let the glue set so it holds the ford in place while I fold over the sides of the crimp. I always have the bird move forward or back on me. Thank you!

Just the thing I have been looking for. Looks easy. We'll see after I try it!
