Bead/Bell Caps for Gluing

Turn hard-to-use beads, shells and polished rocks into pendant drops, using bell caps, glue-on bead cap findings, or TierraCast bead cappers from Rings & Things.
  • Bell caps and glue-on bead cap findings are unsung heroes of the jewelry-making world. Some have "legs" that can be adjusted to fit a shell, polished rock, or other organic shape. They allow you to take a no-hole round or curved item, add a dab of adhesive, and turn it into a dangle. These are popular jewelry-making cap findings for rockhounds.
  • Beaver-tail fold-over bails are another option that may work when a bell cap isn't quite the right size and shape.
  • Bead caps with pegs are normally used with half-drilled pearls and half-drilled gemstones.
  • Bead cappers from TierraCast help you turn large-hole beads -- such as handmade lampwork beads made on a 3/32" mandrel -- into pendants.

For jewelry for sale, we recommend two-part epoxies. It's a bit more work, but for most applications, it's more durable. For personal repairs, Super New Glue is a popular option. Be sure to read each glue's product details to see which materials it works best with.
