Create beautiful beaded jewellery with ease using this clever mould.
Each firing creates six square beads, six round beads, and two cabochons. The beads are small, each measuring about 5/8 inch (15mm) in diameter.
Because of the mould’s engineering, the beads almost never require any cold work - grinding or polishing. They can be strung on leather or a silver chain to make a beautiful necklace.
We strongly recommend using ZYP Boron Nitride Spray with our casting moulds for the very best results. Primo Primer can also be used. Standard shelf primer is not suitable.
The mould itself measures 4.5 x 7 x 1 inches (11.5 x 18 x 2.5 cm). The fill weight for each of the six squares is 2-3 grams. For the circles; 1 to 2 grams; For the two cabochons; 1 gram.
When filling the mould, pile the frit in a pyramid or dome shape so the centre of the mould is filled higher than the edges. This helps the correct flow of glass during firing, lowering the risk of the glass 'grabbing' the mould sides as it fires:
Why not also try the Geometric Bead mould?
Please note that all our moulds are hand-made and therefore the dimensions may vary slightly from those shown. Mould manufacturers allow a tolerance of up to 2cm.
All our moulds are designed for multiple use and with care should last for many firings.
