Latest Beads

The diamond core bits on ebay are real cheap from china and some work well.  I used them to punch these beads out and drilled the holes by eye, some you can tell, some not.  The material is stuff I collected in Hachita.  I then used pins in small pin vises to hold the bead against a vertical 6" diamond flat from Lopackis rotating at about 600 rpm to rough them in and homemade sanding wheels of the flap design to sand down to level where I could finish with diamond powders.  See his bead tutorial at for information on how the bead works.  The bottom pix is before polish at about 200 grit sanding level....b
