Hiya

I took the plunge and bought myself a Zoozii press form Tuffnell and made this necklace with the beads.....

Nice beads Bea, I'm tempted with a press, are they easy to use?

I have intentions of getting a lentil press and another at flame off and the tabs seem a nice shape. Very Happy

Thank you :-)

I found the press quite easy to use, it takes the first couple of beads to know how much glass you need but you soon get the hang of it. The press I have is a charm press (I think!), it has about 6 different shapes. Love it!

I really love that necklace, Bea. Beautiful beads. I think you made a great investment with your bead press.

Thanks Bea, I hope I find a press easier than a graphite roller, might put mine up for sale just can't get on with it. Very Happy
