Big hole beads

For those of you who like Pandora and Troll beads I have been playing with my larger mandrels this week and made a few big hole beads (or BHB's!).  These are surprisingly difficult to make as the more glass you add to a larger diameter rod, the harder it is to keep it spinning evenly to get a nice round bead.  Often you end up with a lopsided bead instead so it can be quite a frustrating experience at times!

The two beads shown are ones that I have sent in to the FH forum as part of a BHB swap.  I have no idea what I will receive in return but that's half the fun!  I hope someone enjoys these as much as I did making them.
