No surprise that I have many of her various shapes and sizes. Last time I counted, I think I had 12 bead rollers (pssst, don’t tell my bank manager).
Yesterday I finally received with the mail the newest shape in her range of her bead rollers. It’s a ribbed donut bead roller (Donna calls it the hickup, but that’s a different story!). Here it is in all it’s glory.
I made 3 bead sets yesterday night (yes, I couldn’t stop) and is in fact so easy to use, I believe it is the easiest of all the bead rollers. It pushes the glass nicely into the grooves and shapes smooth, evenly rounded ridges. Plus: it’s nearly impossible to create anything but nicely dimpled ends.
And just look at the texture that it creates. On the left you see a set with larger rounds (base of Fire Lotus silver glass) complemented by matching small clear rounds.
Here is an example with Psyche (not encased, reduced to oilslick shine).
Next I will test her new ribbed bicone bead roller. I made just a few test beads yesterday and found it to be not quite as easy to use as the donut bead roller. But I will do some more testing this weekend – it might just be a matter of ppp (practice practice practice).
PS. I am not in any way affiliated with cgbeads even though it might sound differently LOL
