1-to-1 connectors have a ring on each end. They're available in a variety of styles, from modern and streamlined to intricately patterned. These connectors can be used in place of bead links or as quick and easy earrings. They can also be used as dangles on a beaded design.
2-to-1 connectors have two rings on one end and a single ring on the other end. They're commonly used in Y necklaces. Each side of the necklace connects to a ring on one end of the connector. The center drop dangles from the single ring on the connector.
3-to-1 connectors have three rings on one end and a single ring on the other end. They are most often used to create chandelier earrings or multiple strand designs. They can also be used as pendants.
3-to-3 connectors have three rings on each end. They make great focal points for multistrand necklaces and bracelets.
4-way connectors have a ring on all four sides. You can use each ring as a connection point like the designer did with this necklace. Bumpy rings attach the diamond-shaped connectors together and a beaded dangle is attached to each of the other rings.
