TierraCast BeadAligners help the large-hole Grace Lampwork Beads at the center of this necklace stay on the strand in line with the other beads. With these bead aligners, you can easily use large-hole beads on thinner stringing materials. You can learn more about these fun components, along with other items you might not know we have in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
