Look Ma! Two Beads On One!

Two beads on one mandrel!

The reason for this isn’t (for me) to crank beads out more quickly, I make beads slooooowly and I have a stupid amount of beads. It’s about sizing pairs. So when I make beads on separate mandrels I can get them pretty close in size. 
For instance I would use these two beads as a pair. They’re not perfect but close enough

But mostly what I get is this dammit!

But two beads to a mandrel and 🎶 yes sir, I can boogie, boogie boogie all night long 🎶

And if like me, sometimes you really need something random from the 70’s, you’re welcome 😁
