Blue Zephyr Fine Metals
I use the tree and other designs to finish 6-strand flat leather braided bracelets and I use 2mm round leather cord for the braid. The width and height of the cap fit around the leather ends perfectly and the cap is deep enough to squish all the leather ends in so they don't pop out before I get it crimped. I add a generous amount of hypo cement to the back and the bottom (solid side) of the cap before crimping (not the top or is shows gooey through the beautiful pattern). The end cap bends easily and I recommend a pair of parallel nylon jaw pliers to avoid distorting the cap shape or marring the polished surface. I have been wearing my prototype bracelet for a month solid, in dish water, in the shower, in the garden, (i.e. abusing the heck out of it) and there is zero degradation to the integrity and appearance of the cap, and the leather ends are staying put. Highly recommend and I just bought more!!
