These are very exciting tools!! You can now get the wonderful Lentil or Pillow Shapes you love with out using a mandrel!
You simply form a gather on the end of your rod, press, punty, burn off glass rod, repress, add loop and you have a beautiful Off Mandrel Pendant! The groove for the glass rod will accommodate up to a 10mm rod of glass.
A loop to the top creates a great pendant!
You could add a loop to the back for a nice big sweater or coat button!!
We had fun adding larger rings to the back, making great napkin rings, or rings for your fingers, if you like your jewelry chunky!
The beads measure:
Lentil: 24.5mm (1") x 14mm thick
Pillow: 24.5mm (1") x 15mm thick
We have provided a PDF Tutorial to support you in using your new tool!
