Scrimps

Simply stated, .925 Sterling Silver Scrimp findings are an innovative screw finding that takes the place of a crimp. A tiny set screw inside holds Beadalon wires securely in place. The complete Scrimp Kit contains its own screwdriver (Base metal) and six Sterling Silver Scrimp Findings with Silver Plated brass screws. Six additional screws are cleverly held within the handle of the screwdriver.

Scrimp Findings are easy to use for necklaces, bracelets and anklets. Partially unscrew the screw in the Scrimp Finding, insert Beadalon wire (up to 0.53mm .021” diameter) into the Scrimp Finding, through a clasp, and back through the Scrimp Finding until the desired loop size is obtained. (Use a Sterling Silver Wire Guardian to lengthen the life of the connection). Then, simply tighten the screw and begin stringing. Repeat steps for the opposite end of your design for a secure, removable, and flexible finish.

For a permanent finish use a partial drop of Bead Fix on the tightened screw. Use these refill Scrimp findings with the Beadalon Scrimp Kit Screwdriver for a quick, professional finish.
