These are awesome, perfect, exactly what I wanted and needed. I couldn't be happier with them. They fit 8mm beads great and I am sure they would be great with 10's but I like 8s.
I love these cones - they are beautiful and give a very elegant touch to any design, adding that little something special that makes the difference.
I've been getting into kumihimo lately. I have a chronic pain illness, and also find crochet and knitting challenging. Kumihimo is simple and relaxing, and can produce such a variety of cords. I've been looking around for end pieces to build a stash, other than the standard kumihimo ends. These little cones are perfect! The designs are indeed elegant, well-made and look like the real-thing precious metal. They'd also be nice in a simple bracelet or a string of pearls necklace.
I would like to make a 3 strand twisted necklace and have it end with this pretty cone just before the clasp.
