I have been experimenting with multi-strand seed bead strands prepratory to doing some amulet bags.  I have looked all over creation, yes even fire mountain, and have been unable to find large bead cones for the ends that will nicely cover 8-10 strands of seeds.  I also wish to be able to add larger bead strand perhaps up to a 6.0.   Undecided Sad  This is starting to drive me to distraction!)  I have seen them on ebay, but they need to be metal, and I can't do like you can in a store, touchy feely.  Anyone have any ideas let me know.  I have tried hobby lobby, my daughter is looking at ben franklins and michaels for me tomorrow.  I have like 5 necklaces ready to sell but for completing the ends.....grrrrrrrr


Peace, Hugs and Beads!!

Have you tried artbeads.com?

These first three are large:




This last one is extra large. They should do the trick just fine. Make sure to post pics of your finished piece!

TYTY!!!!  I think that the extra large should work perfectly!!!  I will have to get an order together.  I think might be some other shiney things in there I could use and "need"   Smiley

Monsterslayer has a bunch! http://www.monsterslayer.com/Pages/SSConesBeadCaps/SSConesBeadCaps.aspx

I just did a search for cones in the search box and clicked on sterling silver. I believe they have some in other types of metals, just search their site.

I always go to monsterslayer first when I'm trying to buy metal things. They have great prices and are wonderful. I buy from them all the time. Oh yeah and the lowest prices on sterling and gold that I have found Smiley.
