#4..Round bur making beads!


In this very interesting #4 video, I am starting to cut a pattern using a simple #006 round bur to cut beads. These beads are not the usual kinds you’ve seen before. These beads are then going to burnished over the stone once made. This process saves you so much time..but these have to be very carefully created.
I will use a round bur or even a #006 bud-shaped bur. The choice is up to you when the space allows it. Either bur shape will suffice.
