Using Cones

video
As you start making more and more complex pieces of jewelry - you will find yourself with multiple strands, wondering how to finish them off to be nice and tidy at the ends. You might even have seen a necklace finished with long cones at the end, picked it up and handled it and thought "That looks nice - how the heck does that work? How do I get the ends to go in there and stay there?" The answer is annoyingly simple. In a nutshell - you make a loop, attach all the ends to it, stuff the loop with the ends on it into the big end of the cone - and make a loop on the other side of the cone to attach the clasp too. Watch the video and all will be revealed!
