As part of the Metal Clay Makers programme, I get sent a package every two months of products to try out. This month had loads of goodies including texture rollers. I have to say I was a bit dubious about using them because they've got quite a deep imprint and I was worried they'd eat too much of the clay. How wrong I was! It's easy to control the depth of the imprint and they're so easy to use! My absolute favourite is called "Lines and Dots" and I've used it on the pendant below - which I'll be demonstrating at The Big Bead Show on 9th April.
Also in the package was a bezel cup. I always make my own but for smaller stones it can be challenging if you're using bezel wire so I can see how these can become an essential. Again, they're incredibly easy to use and I'm going to make a video review in the next few days demonstrating a few different ways they can be used.
I have to say that this is now my favourite pendant and I know I'm going to wear it loads.
