I am looking for copper ends for 2 mm Greek leather cord. Connie,
here are some ideas.
(1) On the little 8 X 6mm sheets you are using now, add a little "v"
at the bottom edge, when you’re cutting them out. Press that part
straight into the leather when you wrap the copper around it. It
should hold the end-piece in place, even without using glue [I hate
(2) Or, take a piece of copper tubing that fits nicely on the
leather, solder a piece of sheet metal on one end, drill a hole in
the sheet metal, coil a piece of copper wire on one end, run the
other end up through the drilled hole, make a loop. Slip the tubing
onto the leather, along with some glue.
(3) Or, probably the easiest is to make a coil of copper wire that
will fit snugly onto the leather cord. Slide it onto the cord. Crimp
the bottom ring into/onto the leather, to hold the end in place. Lift
up the top one (or two) ring(s) to use as the loop to which to attach
jump rings, etc. This resembles the most common type of commercial
end cap, in brass, which most jewelry catalogs (and craft stores)
I’m sure there are other options. I look forward to reading them.
All the best,
