BHBs - what are BHBs?

BHBs = Big Hole Beads. 

Please, no puns.

These beads will fit on any Pandora style charm bracelet.  They are made on a 5/32" mandrel, blanketed then batch annealed for durability (like all my other beads), then cleaned with a diamond reamer.  Want to see some?

The majority of the above beads are made with silvered glass - this gives them the streaky, multi-coloured effect. 

I enjoy making these beads.  No, really!  They're small, take a short amount of time to make, and sets are SO much easier to do with these little ones than larger beads.
