Fun with Bead Rollers

Bead rollers are quite possibly the best tool I’ve ever avoided lol

Well, not entirely avoided.  Years ago I did made an oval roller using a piece of pvc pipe.  It does multiple sizes.

I was discussing with a friend the fact that I should make spacer beads to sell.  I’m often asked for them and usually don’t have any.  She offered to send me her smallest bead roller as she’s moved on to lampwork and doesn’t really need her clay tools anymore.  I agreed.

So I got it and started making beads.  Darn thing is addicting.  I’ve made around 200 of the tiny beads (about 10mm).  The only thing that sucks is putting holes in.  So anyway, I was playing with this tiny roller and realizing that having larger rollers would be good too.  So I bought some.  Actually it’s a set and it arrived today (along with snowflake cutters but that’s another story).  I haven’t yet played with them – I plan to do so just as soon as I finish this post – but they look like they’ll be fun.
