Happy Friday Evening Everyone!
Today I have a teensy little batch of Lanslide beads to close out the week...these are made of the exotic and expensive material Zirconium. This was the first time I have worked with this metal and I gotta say, it's really weird stuff. Kind of reminds me of a very dense and heavy titanium in that you have to be careful sanding it because the dust is highly flammable. With Zr the fumes are also quite unhealthy and it requires heating with a torch to achieve the final blackened finish. So a good respirator and adequate ventilation are a must when working with it. It's interesting stuff and I'm glad I tried it finally after all these years of hearing about it, but not something I will probably bother with again. Cool finish and final look though.
Anyway, the Zirconium 5 Flute Beads are $45 plus shipping. It is a strict one per customer limit on them please since the batch is very small. Thanks for stopping in and have a great weekend!
Zr 5 Flutes are gone, thank you!
