Each firing creates three triangular beads and three square beads each measuring about 1 inch (25mm) in diameter. The beads can be strung on leather, rubber, or silk, or wire wrapped to create jewelry ranging from simple and casual to dramatic and elegant. Because of mold’s engineering, the beads almost never require any cold work – grinding or polishing. This design coordinates beautifully with our Simple Round and Small Ring Beads, and our Oval and Diamond Glasslinks. They also make great contemporary embellishments to plates, platters, and other larger pieces. We recommend using ZYP release.
