Zulu...the beads remind me of the cool shields of the Zulu People! The holes go side to side, creating some great texture in finished jewelry pieces! The shape is available in a Trio and Large press.
The Zulu Large measures:
35mm long x 22mm wide x 8mm thick
This tool contains a mandrel groove to accommodate a 1/16th or 5/64th mandrel, if you prefer to use 3/32nd mandrels, you may select to have us modify your tool.
Hint: This tool works well with a "chunky donut bead", a bit off center, as the "pre-press" shape. The donut should be about 1mm thinner on each side then the press is wide.
