I used to string the cleaned beads on 1/16th mandrels that I suspended between little blocks of kiln brick. Didn't have the beads touching each other. I only did it once or twice, but it worked fine.

Try putting your beads in glowing, but hold onto the mandrel and keep the bead suspended in mid-air for one minute. It'll seem like forever, but that one minute will allow your bead to firm up...
