My other new bead tool


well the sister tool to my other one arrived, I love this one too!

I’ve only made one bead with it so far, but its sooo much better than the press, I really didn’t get on with it, I would only get about 1 in 3 beads coming out ok, and even if they came out un mangled and with bead release intact they weren’t nice even lentils. I think this style of tool just suits the way I work much better.

this didn’t go anywhere near my new tool, but its pretty! I made one of these ages ago, and I gave it away to a friend, but I’ve been meaning to make another one. a picture was posted in the daily inspiration thread on Frit Happens yesterday of a beautiful orange flower, and it inspired me to get my button mandrel out again!
