I love this bead. It has great color swirls of tan, light brown and caramel. The hole is a little large and just a touch offset. But I found the perfect solution, which I have used with several lampwork beads. Use the beadalon bead bumpers, item #522-0214
. I place one on the head pin, then the bead and another bumper. The bumpers make the beads fit tightly to the pin.
