I'm quite new to jewellery making.  I love the look of bead caps.  What size bead caps do you use with what size beads?  For instance, do you need a 10mm bead cap for a 10mm round bead?

Thanks all.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

There are so many styles of beads and bead caps that I think you really have to just try to find what looks best with your piece and what fits.

Generally yes, that would work. If it's small, it will fit. If it is larger or ornate, you may want to check and make sure it's a little bit flexible in case you need to open it up a bit.
