Fancy Silver Fume beads start out as a solid color tube that gets that gets fumed with a layer of 99.9% pure silver. This gives the beads a iridescent coating in an array of colors. I then use a clear glass rod to create a spiral and marble free form motif on the surface. The clear brings out the highlights on the silver and gives it a bit of texture. Nice even thickness all the way thru.
6mm bead holes work well for super small dread or really new dread that have not full tightened. Also work well for hemp jewelry.
8mm small size bead holes are a great for small size dreads or hemp jewelry.
10mm medium size bead hole is the most versatile and should fit somewhere on almost any head of dreads. Also a good size for really thick hemp jewelry
12mm large size bead hole is still pretty common size for dreads and fits easy over ends that are a little chunky.
14mm Extra Large size bead hole is for some chunky dreadlocks or places where multiple dreads have grown into one
16mm super large size bead holes are for the chunkiest of dreads. If you think you need something bigger than this, contact me.
