Inverted and Hourglass Mandrels were recently added as Accessories to the original Conetastic™ concept, clever additions that allow the tool to work even harder for you.
Bend it, twist it, shape it, wear it. In my latest episode from the Beads, Baubles and Jewels Television show, watch as I warm-up by bending and shaping sheet metal using Conetastic™. The design is then enhanced with patterns, texture and color. View segments of this latest video and a sampling of others on my Video page.
Lush Garden Necklaces display a palette of colors, textures, and shapes using vintage or contemporary themes.
View several of my other original creations on my design page and in the Gallery of Designs on the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads website.
Conetastic™ Signature Series, Kits and Instructions - all are available in my store. A free Hourglass and Pearl Earring Kit will be included with your purchase of the complete Conetastic™ Signature Series.

“This gloriously regal brooch, with its stunning Cabochon swan cameo, has a retro feel that reprises all the glamour of a 19th-century salon.” - Swarovski Click to view and download the project.
