I really like making beads; sawing, hammering, soldering, drilling, polishing...what's not to like?! All the beads are sterling, textured on both sides and drilled through the center lengthwise. The holes will accommodate at least a 20 gauge wire, if you would like a larger hole, let me know and I can enlarge the hole for you. The beads are generally in the size range of 8mm - 15mm height and 10mm - 20mm diameter. These are not the lightweight stamped beads you may be accustom to buying please plan your pieces accordingly.
Roll over the picture to see both sides of this bead. This sterling bead is stamped "Be Happy" it is 10mm high, diameter of 20mm and weight 4.3 grams.
