Fenner Benedict’s brass beads are made by using a combination of modern manufacturing and traditional hand-finishing. First, the brass workpiece is machined on a lathe. During the next step, the bead is hand-hammered, which gives the surface a nice texture. In the last step, edges and corners are chamfered and polished to make sure there are no sharp edges. The result is a stunning bead that makes a beautiful addition to any lanyard. The 6 millimeter hole easily accepts double strands of 550 paracord.
The bead is available from Fenner Benedict’s Etsy store.
