I am just soooo pleased with this I literally did a little dance with it around the studio this morning!... :clap: :clap: ..hehehe!

I have been working on this for quite some time..but my hubby perfected it and I did my first bead last night...I am so excited!! :D

These are Bent Mandrel Beads ...I think they would make awesome center focals on necklaces...the hold runs all the way through the V shape!

Oo that is really cool--Beautiful decoration!

Last week or so someone had mentioned somthing about V and curved beads and some people were tryng to figure out how to assemble a "V" mandrel---did you use two separate mandresl to create the V?

Thanks:) I hated using the steel wool gunky messy pain in the butt method..lol..so ive been working on this for months to come up with a better way. My husband is quite the handy kinda guy but is usually too busy with work to do these type of things for me.

Its hard to explain but I will have a page on my website tonight with a tutorial.

Many Blessings
Deb

im off to make more bent beads! :wave: lol

Thinking it's because you need to market the tool, not write the directions. We all love new tools, and we're also very, very happy to see fellow artists being able to make a living doing what they love! :clap:

Went to your site and got up the description but couldn't bring up the picture of the bent mandrel. Got the dreaded red X box. Tried show picture thing and still no pictures. Sigh! Peg M

You're a genius! I could not imagine how you did this. Granted, I'm a rookie but my mind just wouldn't wrap around the idea. Your website is wonderful!
