The Bi-Cone Drops add great texture to jewelry and a whole string of them is impressive!
The Bi-Cone Trio Large has 3 cavities in the following sizes:
- 32mm x 12mm
- 37mm x 19mm
- 39mm x 21mm
The press works best with 1/16th or 5/64th mandrel. If you work primarily with 3/32nd mandrels you can select that modification, which we will provide at no charge.
Tips: To make a Bi-Cone, I recommend making a round bead that is about 1mm smaller than the cavity is wide, then you can add glass to the top and bottom, to fill in the points of the mold. You could also make a disk bead about 2mm shorter than the cavity is long (tip to tip), but that is a little trickier in terms of filling the press out across the mandrel grooves, especially in the larger cavities.
The super fun string of beads was made by Lori Greenberg!
