I am making some lower-priced items for the school bazaar at the end
of October. I am looking for copper ends for 2 mm Greek leather
cord. I have scoured the internet and I have found nothing except
Sterling endcaps. They are beautiful, and I have spent much time
almost buying them, but I’m keeping my eye on the project at hand.
So far I am making my own by soldering a copper wire loop with 2
tails (sorta keyhole-shaped) to a little rectangle of thin copper
sheet, about 8 mm x 6 mm. I wrap this rectangle around the leather
cord, with a drop of E-6000 inside. The wire loop sticks out the top
with its ends hidden inside. It looks and works great, but it’s
time-consuming and fussy to crimp.
My whole point was to make some really low-priced things, and I
can’t produce the quantity I want at this rate.
OK, thanks in advance everyone for any tips.
