Beadalons bead stoppers are the perfect beading accessory to keep your projects organized and neat. Use the Bead Stopper to prevent beads from falling off the end of the strand. Using alligator clips or sticky tape will either make a mess out of everything you touch or it can kink your stringing material. The Bead Stopper will hold your work securely, and it won't fall off, even with a good tug. You won't go wrong using the Bead Stopper with all of your beading projects. Made in the USA by Beadalon.
