Big hole beads are perfect for stringing on heavy chain or cord bracelets and necklaces. These 14 beads were created using a 3/16"diameter mandrel and accounting for the bead release and after cleaning the inside diameter is approximately 6mm.
They were created in a range of gemstone colours suitable to create birthday or family jewelry.
I like to core and cap these beads with silver to add a finished look. When lining these beads, I recommend using soft or annealed tube. There are several options available but the tube I would use is from Rio Grande Jewelry Supply. https://www.riogrande.com/product/999-Fine-Silver-587mm-Seamless-Tubing-Soft-12-Length/100937
