Hi, this is Kat with and tubes to match your beadalon beading wire now I have here just an example of beadalon beading wire and I wanted to pull this out because they actually let you know exactly what's going to work for whatever type of stringing wire that you've chosen so for example you can see here there's a number one and a number two and this symbol is going to be your crimp bead and this symbol is going to be your crimp tube so what's really great is on the packaging of their crimp tubes they've indicated that right there for me so I know that this number two matches this number two and these are ideal crimp tubes for this particular beading wire now a crimp bead is a little bit different I have a package here and this is actually a multi pack so I have size zero one two and three so you can kind of see how they look a little bit different down here and this beading wire is thin so it's telling me that I need number one well I would use this one right here number one now if you're working with a certain type of beading wire and you know you're always going to be using the same crimp tube but you might want to use different colors these are great little variety packs these are crimp tubes and they're all size format number three but I have silver gold copper and gunmetal so this is always a great little pack to have on hand once you've decided sort of if you're working with the same materials and you want the same wire but you want to use a different finish depending on what you're working on so that's just a really great thing the multi packs are always really nice and they stay in their little tubes here which as you can see on this one they're indicated as number three you can kind of see it in there number two and so on and so forth so once you remove it from this package you'll at least always have that little tube really great and really nice and handy but if you ever have questions about which crimp tube goes with which why're just take a look at your wire and it will tell you exactly what works for it I hope you enjoyed this video you can get all of these supplies and more at you
