I received a new press yesterday that I ordered. It makes "round" beads. It seems like these would be a natural, easy shape to make without a press, but they really aren't. I REALLY like this shape. I have three different sizes, 10, 12 and 14mm. These are the 12mm and I think they would be great for earrings. I made some 14mm beads out of boro last night, so I am excited to get those up on the web site. I am thinking about ordering another press with a larger size. Would love to hear your thoughts on this shape. I added these to the website under the pairs of earrings category.
