Wire thimbles...I love you!

My wire thimbles came from Rings 'n' Things today...oh, these are worth it.
They do make your loop bigger though...it looks fine but you do have to incorporate the slight extra length into your design.
Here is a piece I was working on when the order arrived (mind you, I'm still waiting on my crimps, so this design was temporarily strung anyway):
You'll note how much the wire thimble extends the length of the strand. When I get the crimps and actually make this piece, I'll likely take out the vermeil beads at the two ends of the strand, and just go with the look of a gf crimp cover terminating the strand.
Here you can see again how much difference the wire thimbles make in terms of length and space.
