Smile Long Awaited Pierced Flower Press™ Now Available for Preorder!

Yes, it is true! After a year of blood, sweat, tears (and a lot of money invested in design, engineering, prototypes and development), I have the first prototype in my hands (here in Houston at The Gathering), and my first flower beads, as well. My order for 100 sets of castings goes in tomorrow, and it should take 4-6 weeks from that date until I get them back from my toolmaker all welded together and ready to ship out.

They require use of a .035" or smaller mandrel (that's 19 gauge). I'm selling 304L stainless steel (9") mandrels in sets of 8 for $4. You can also see if your local welding shop has them, or will order for you (some insist on 10lb orders).

I'll be working on a photo and a video tutorial when I get home so that everyone will be prepared to use their fantastic NEW TOOLS!!!!!

To PreOrder You'll need to go to

and pay a $50 deposit. I'll email you when the tools are in, and then send a Paypal invoice (or get whatever payment you prefer) for the balance plus shipping.

I don't have the final tool in front of me, but I asked the casting company for measurements: The inner part (upper/male) of the press depth is approximately 12.35mm, the width is approx. 15mm from pin to pin...So that would be the largest possible inner measurement of a flower.

Here are a few photos:

****I am having trouble making the shopping cart accept orders (It won't take the item without weight, and if I add a weight, it says I haven't). If you would like to preorder, and the cart won't do it, please email me at gailjos @ gmail.com and I will send a paypal invoice to reserve your tool.

I see the final cost is on your website, but you might want to put it in your post above.

The price is $129.95...I was able to bring it down $10 from what I expected to have to charge!

I placed my order! I'm looking forward to a new toy. I forgot to add mandrels to the order. I think I'll go send a follow up e-mail.

They are made on a mandrel and can be removed from it instead of being made permanently on a wire

They are also flared outwards (overall shape is different), i.e., side are sort of concave instead of convex (very slightly). The main issue is that they make a BEAD, not a headpin. Of course, I suppose you could make one on the end of a wire if you wanted to do so...

Mine's on preorder (is it here yet?)

I see so many possibilities of stringing them together, and I liked the trick you gave me of making the flowers bigger or smaller via the amount of glass. Love those 'dah' moments.

Will a 1/16" mandrel work for these?

No, not unless you file the slots to be bigger.

I have to find someone to help me take photos! Since the process requires two hands, there is no way for me to take photos of myself! I'm trying to get Renee Wiggins to help, but she's got a lot going on...But I'm working on it!!!!

Yes---I'll be sending an email when they come in, asking if people need anything else (also, I don't necessarily have addresses or all info from everyone), and that way I can add or adjust shipping amounts, too. I won't just ship and charge...-Gail

Absolutely! I'll send an email saying they are in, and asking if there is anything else you need/want to add to the order. The press and mandrel (only) will go out first (easier to pack), then the others, but it should go fairly quickly.

I have another 70 on order. Plus, I'm out of oval mandrels, so I'm waiting for those, too.

I checked out the tutorial for using it on your website. It looks pretty easy to use. Are you requiring a $50.00 deposit for the next 70?

Thank you ��

I have had 70 more castings made, but as it stands right now, I'm only getting a few in at at time from the toolmaker who puts them together, so yes, I'm requiring deposits for orders to reserve tools. The first 30 I got in this week were already reserved, and hopefully the next batch will come in the next couple of weeks (don't know how many).

Now, let's hope people start posting flower photos in the Gallery!!!-Gail
