Rose Bead 224b-96 Cutting Notes

Begin by cutting a 16-sided cylindrical preform. The height of the preformed cylinder must be at least .75 times its maximum width for you to have enough material when you get to the course 7 (pole) facets. When you cut the course 1 facets for the first hemisphere, create a level 'girdle' (equator) line at half the height of cylinder.

Transfer when you've finished the first hemisphere, and repeat the course 1-7 sequence on the second hemisphere.

If you cut a Rose Bead 224b-96 of your own, be sure and let me know what you've cut and how you made out.
