Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find the name of a finding that is used for long crystals...it's kind of like a bead cap and is approx an inch long!  I believe they are plastic and are painted either silver or gold.  I used to have some, but they were bought a long time ago, so can't even remember where I got them from.  I can't even find a pic of one so I can include it with this post.....unless I take a pic of the one I have....maybe I'll do that.  In fact I will.



Sorry I can't help more, but that's the only way of describing it.

Hopefully someone can let me know what the name is, and perhaps even where I can buy them from please?

Hugs
Naomi

I'm stuck unless it's a fancy bola tip.

It kinda does look like a fancy bola tip, but I think it's a bead cap. If you look for "bead cap" or "cone" you should find what you're looking for. I've never seen them in plastic though, only silver, silver plated, brass or gold.

I'm pretty sure it's a cone-style bead cap, they're often used to hide the ends of several seed bead strands.
This ornate style is often known as "filligree". Hope that helps!

Thanks for all the help everyone....they are indeed filigree cones and I have now purchased some.
