The Kalera is a rectangle, with a curved surface on the top and bottom. It's as if you took two 1/4 sections of pipe and set them on top of each other. You have a flat end near the mandrel, a curved surface that meets at a point on the edges adjacent the mandrel. These beads make particularly great earrings!
Kalera Trio makes beads in 3 sizes that measure:
- 10mm wide, 15mm long, 6mm thick
- 11mm wide, 17mm long, 7mm thick
- 16mm wide, 21mm long, 10mm thick
This is a versatile shape that came out of the collaboration with Kalera Stratton. To read more about that and our other collaborations, you can head over to the Collaborations page!
