The simple shape has straight sides and flat surfaces both front and back. This is a great canvas for a wide range of decorations.
The Tile XLarge measures:
38mm (1.5") x 8mm
The mandrel groove accommodates a 1/8" mandrel.
Think outside the box:
Press your bead. Then with a hot tungsten poker, create a hole through the bead. You can repress, if you warp the shape. Repressing might warp the hole, a little, but you can always re-poke the hole. As long as you keep the bead warm, you can press and poke as much as you need to get the hole clean and the shape crisp. I poked two holes in this Large Tile, but the same could be done with the XLarge, then threaded ribbon through each hole and tied them in the front! Very fun.
