Common Begleri - Zirc Edition

The Commons get their name from the ubiquity of their shape in traditional Greek begleri and komboloi. These barrel-shaped beads are timeless in their simplicity, and very similar beads can be found in a wide range of materials ranging from inexpensive plastics through to semi-precious stones. The Commons design is our take on this classic shape, and the result is both fresh and familiar. Although they have commonalities with our Standards series, they nonetheless stand out in Aroundsquare's lineup. The stacked bead design has a distinctly traditional vibe, but the choice of lightly polished titanium gives them a clean, minimalist look that fits squarely in our range.

The individual Common beads have a 1:1 aspect ratio, meaning the two-stack setup is longer feeling than most of our sets, much like our Micro Bosses. However, the cylindrical shape of the beads provides a nice element of control when manipulating the beads during play. The zirc beads weigh in at around 5.6g each, making the sets light and nimble at around 22.5g overall, depending on cord choice. The beads feature a 3.5mm "Goldilocks" bore, making them suitable for play with 4.7g (roughly 2.8 to 3.5mm) 100% silk cord. However, where these beads really thrive is on thinner cord, much like the common Greek beads on which they are based.
