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.

Found your collection on instagram months ago, so glad to have finally visited your website. What a lovely bead! If I may ask, what are the paracord ends made of and where are they from?
Thank you very much for your kind words! I buy these small brass tubes from Jannik Decaffeinato. You can find him on Instagram (@mr.decaffeinato) and on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/jannik.decaffeinato).
