The following are the explanations to assemble lentil beads without making holes into them. I'd like to thank again Legna for having given to me some piece of information.

110

When you have baked and polished your lentils, prepare 2 sheets of clay, the first at the number 2 of the pasta machine, the other at number 3
You make a round shape into the nr 3 sheet, with the round cutter you have used to make lentils
Into the nr 2 sheet, you make a round shape slightly smaller

turn over the lentil

210

Put the bigger round onto the inside of the lentil and press very well in order to avoid bubbles

310

Cut the surplus with a blade and smooth the edges with your fingers

410

Place a metal rod at 10:10 (or at the middle if you are doing a bracelet)

510

Then cover the rod with the smaller round and press strongly

612

Cut the surplus and smooth

710

And this is it! You only need to re-bake the lentil with the rod within it.
