Have you ever wondered how to get a triangle shape on some of your beads?

1. Make a disk bead on a medium sized mandrel:

2. Add glass in 3 places around the disk (I add this glass by “swiping” it down and back up. (You can see that in the video at the bottom of this post.)

3. Heat each flat side to a glow and straighten with a marver. do this one side at a time, making sure that only ONE side gets hot.

4. Straighten out the triangle with tweezers, again, one side at a time.
