From the looks of it, that is a bead cap. I think the stone is only partially drilled and there is an eye hook glued into the hole. So it would go from bottom up: partially drilled stone, bead cap, eye hook glued into the stone, jump ring.

Hope that helps!

Ah thanks! I did find exactly what I was looking on ebay under "bead cap with loop". Sometimes it's just that easy!

ok, so i'm totally new at beading, i've only made a couple single-strand necklaces. boring, i know. So, i was wondering, if i'm going to start making other cool stuff (multi-layered neckalces, dangly earrings, etc) what should i buy? toggles/clasps? spacers? what kind of wire/cord? beads everyone should have? what about jump rings & chain? head pins? ahhhhhh it's all a-whirl in my head.
thanks!

Start with a set of jewelry making tools. In the beginning, buy supplies based on the project you are working. In most cases, you will often buy multiples of most smaller components. As you gather more and more extras, you will need to buy fewer components for similar beading projects.

As others have stated - do a little research and learn about what's available and it's usage.

Best of luck...

Bead spinners make life so much easier! I have seen them for a lot less that $50. Message me and I can find the link for you Smiley
