This string of 10 fat donuts measures 4 inches long with the glass bead spacers. The beads measure about 12mm X 9mm. The beads are kiln annealed for strength and durability and are wound on 3/32 inch mandrels. The beads are ivory covered with shards of blue and silvered ivory. The shards haven't fully been melted in so each bead is a bit lumpy in a good way.
