The focal bead is a hollow core bead, meaning that it has no glass at its center. This makes it considerably lighter than normal beads of this size but still incredibly durable, wearable and usable.
Focal bead measures 22mm x 18mm. Medium size beads are 15mm x 12mm. Smallest beads measure 11mm x 6mm. Mandrel/bead hole size is a generous 2mm.
These beads were handmade by our own Tim James in our Tuscany, Italy studio. Glass used: Italian glass from the Venetian island of Murano.
Since these beads are handmade, please be aware that there may be slight variances in size and shape. Beads are annealed in a digital kiln for strength and durability and are cleaned and inspected for excellence.
