Finishing multiple strands or heavy cord, without glue? You're at the right page! Cone Ends and Bullet Ends are great options to finish the ends of multistrand necklaces, including woven and braided styles like kumihimo braids and Viking knit.
Cone ends and bullet end are also popular for two styles of earrings -- shorter cone ends can be used like bead caps, with dangles below like flower stamens. Longer cone ends and bullet ends are often used for beaded earrings, fringe earrings, and liquid silver earrings. They even work for chain and tassels.
The outside of the cord end can be plain or decorative. The inside gives you a convenient place to hide knots, or the transition from multiple strands, to just a single strand or wire. See below for quick instructions.
