ConetasticTM

In the big wide world of jewelrymaking findings, cones are a must, and it is always difficult to find just the right ones for your designs. Expensive too! Now you can make your own cones with all shapes of wires, in several wire gauges, and in the colors and sizes you want to truly customize your designs.

I designed Conetastic™ with both novices and experienced wireworkers in mind. You can fashion cones with a single wire or with multiple coiled wires in a variety of diameters and lengths with a minimum investment of time. Take a look at some of the designs I created using Conetastic™, including my popular "Ice Cream Cone Earrings", "Copperhead Snake Necklace" and "Coiled Bangle" revisited!

Conetastic™ can be hand-held, placed in a table vise – even mounted in the universal chuck of a coiling tool or a cordless driver. My tool is built for me by the specialists at Beadalon/ArtisticWire® and is available for you to buy and use in your own wirework.

Exclusively in my Store, you can order:

all packaged in my Signature Series box and including printed instructions along with links for free videos showing how to use the tool. (Flat rate shipping cost of $5.00, via USPS Priority Mail within the U.S., will be added to each order.)
