Crimping pliers are used to crush crimp beads in a controlled way for a neatly finished and polished look. The pliers have two small openings. One creates the initial crimp, crushing and flattening the crimp bead, and the other rounds the bead to make the crimp as small as possible. Crimps are used to create loops of wire, to seal strands of beads, and for other tasks. If the crimp bead is small enough, it can fit inside a larger bead to hide the site of the crimp.
