All my beads are annealed in a computer controlled kiln for strength and durability, and cleaned with a diamond tipped dremel. These are handmade so there might be a slight variance in size.

My pictures are taken in a lightbox with an SLR camera to get the best representation of my work. There are still variances in monitors and so forth. If you have any questions or need more pictures, please let me know.
