This crafty creation allows you to showcase your favorite large-hole beads in a place where they can get the attention they deserve. We are partial to using fun and colorful Lampwork Glass Beads with the bead pen. The mandrel, or metal rod, that connects the two parts of this metal pen has a width of 2.5mm, so plan your beads accordingly. Screw the longer threads into the bead pen cap and screw the shorter threads into the bead pen itself. Apply beads liberally as desired. For total customization of the bead pen, use sterling silver Alphabet Beads to spell out any message you want. We also are featuring fun Tube Beads that were specifically designed for the bead pen. These tubes will leave approximately 8mm of extra space on the mandrel, so be sure to have some beads handy to finish your pen!
