This sterling silver bolo tip features an 12mm corrugated saucer bead and a 3mm round bead end. Hollow bolo tips are ideal for finishing the ends of leather, suede, rubber or fabric cord in your southwestern-style neckwear design.
Insert the cord into the open end of the long, cone-shaped finding and secure it in place with jeweler's epoxy and/or crimping, as appropriate.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
