What is a Bead Stopper?
How to Use a Bead Stopper

A set of bead stoppers.

Jennifer VanBenschoten
A bead stopper is a piece of tightly coiled metal wire. There is usually a large loop on either end of the coil, and this loop is very often covered in a soft plastic. The soft plastic covering makes it easier to grip the bead stopper to open, close and position it on your string.

Bead stoppers can be used with any type of beading wire or beading thread.
