C-Koop Beads gives us a multi-purpose shape and a large hole with the shortie! Not only are these beads versatile, but they're made in the USA maintaining high artisan standards. Similar to a roller bead or drum bead, shorties are made from copper then torch-fired with vibrant glass enamel colors. Because they're handmade, each bead will vary slightly, adding to the aesthetic appeal. Their large hole makes shorties a great choice for macrame, kumihimo, and other stringing and knotting projects that use thick cord.
