The following are four ways of many possible to make a metal ball form or bead. They represent possibilities. They can be made small and strung like any other bead or made larger and used as scarf ties, or nekerchief slides. Other uses could be, a ball on the grip of a goblet or candle stick, the top of a railing, a ball in the middle of a walking stick. They would all be considered forged forms. Patina and plated options are also endless. Enjoy Brad
