2nd batch, when one lot is not enough

this is how the new beads come out of the kiln, still on their mandrels,
i make them one at a time on a minor burner gas and oxy torch,
putting them into a kiln to anneal them for toughness and durability
now i have to take them off the mandrels and clean the bead release out of the holes
before i make them into jewelry
