I tried to make some larger beads as well for this swap but didn't like them nearly as much as the first set. I'm going to use them for embellishing journals. I did learn things as a result of this project. I can use my tiny engraver as a sanding and buffing tool for PC. That was a great discovery, the ends of the beads are much flatter than they would be otherwise. If you roll your beads with a cocktail stick already inside, the hole gets bigger but the ends go out of shape as well. You can use alcohol and acrylic inks on top of the clay. Wrapping clay with clay is difficult.
And these are some close ups
