Ready to try the newest look in glass beadmaking? Sewing bobbin beads are easy with these bobbins.

Industrial quality, metal bobbins hold up to the heat well. I use them on a bobbin mandrel, gently heat the core just until the molten glass will stick. Then fill be bobbin with glass. Decorate as you wish, and anneal in a kiln. I recommend an annealing cycle of at least 30 minutes at your normal temperature for your glass type.

Note added: Sept 18, 2011. After making a few dozen beads, I can say these bobbins can take the heat. If you are having trouble with the inexpensive bobbins, give these a try.

Quantity 12. 21mm x 12mm. Bead pictured is not included.
