A strand of thirteen hollow beads in varying sizes, made in medium and dark transparent amber.
The strand also includes fourteen solid spacer beads and a matching shank button.
NOTE: My hollow beads are not blown; they are built using the two disc method so they are not as fragile as you might expect. The walls of the bead are about 2mm thick so they are robust. Obviously the beads are glass and they might smash if you throw them with force at a brick wall or concrete floor, as would most glass beads, so don't be doing that. Basically, the hollow beads are sturdy and nothing like as fragile as a glass Christmas tree bauble.
Hollow bead size/s: Approximately 14mm to mm 16mm diameter. Holes are 2.5mm.
Spacer beads: Approximately 8mm diameter. Holes are 1.8mm.
Button size: Approximately 16mm diameter. Hole is 2.5mm.
Kiln annealed and cleaned
Note: Although I have captured the beads' colours as best as I can, different screen and monitor settings vary and as such the colours of the beads may appear slightly different in real life than they do on your computer or device. In particular, Apple devices tend to ramp up the reds so please bear this in mind when viewing beads that are red, pink, purple etc.
Tumble-etching is not available for these beads.
