New Bead Batch

New Handmade Boro Beads at Alaska BoroAlaska Boro has just removed from the annealing kiln a new batch of beads. Colors of all sorts ranging form blue to green to reds, etc. All of the newly made boro beads are produced on a 3/32 inch mandrel with our new bead release formula.

The new bead release (mandrel release) is applied very thin resulting in a bead hole that is closer to the mandrel size. The best part is that the release does not crack or flake under boro heat conditions. And the release, a big plus, can be flamed dried!

The next few days will be needed to process the new beads. This involves photographing, processing in photoshop and posting.
