Have taken many questions on how to use bead cones. Though there are many uses for bead cones, I will demonstrate techniques on how to incorporate them into a multi-stranded necklace. Itís easy and an attractive way to hide your multiple crimped ends of a necklace or a bracelet!

Attaching Bead Cones
This tutorial was very helpful with the cones and seems a lot easier to use now. However, I have been making crochet bead ropes and have not been able to find a tutorial on attaching the cones and toggle clasp. My thread continues to show in that area. I saw the helix stitch but that is done with wire...correct? Which would be easier to finish out. Can you help me? Thank you for your wonderful tutorials I am just begining to bead and have learned so much from you.
[Editor's Note: The Helix is done with Fireline not wire. Karla says she has not done crochet bead rope. As for the helix it was done with thread.]
