another new bead press

Post by Scrap Monkey on Wed 3 Sep 2014 - 19:33

..well I have to spend the money, or I'd be making a profit on the beads!

This press has possibly been the hardest to master, so particularly happy with this bead set. That said, it's the only purple set I've put up for auction that hasn't sold..

It's basically a sort of two-part mould; LIKE THIS that helps you to get consistent sizes and shapes, but need to be able to make the basic shape first before the press finishes it off.

It's a lovely shape, Tina: strange that the bracelet hasn't sold. Well done for getting to grips with it, though.

Thanks girls. It's not a bracelet though, just a set of beads!

LOL, got no sweeties in! They're just under 14mm across (bout 1/2").

Maybe they haven't sold because you should have them?
