There is another one and I can't remember the person. Artelier or something like that is her last name.

Some really neat and fresh presses.

Default New Corina Tools - Bead Presses, Shapers, Magic Wand, Pokers, etc.

Cornia has a new line of "easy press" bead presses as well as bead shapers, the magic wand, pokers, etc.

I LOVE the new presses because many of them are thinner than those of the other sellers.

She also has tutorials on using the presses.

Default GracefulCustoms's Shop - New Line of Hand-Held Presses

Grace's spouse, Frank manufactures a new line of lampworking tools.

These are great because they are small in overall size (I love my Jim Moore pillow press but it requires extra grip strength and is pretty 'big' overall).

The Squeeze me Right mashers and shapers provided by Grace and Frank are easy to use - a great design! And because they are small(er) overall they are really easy to transport (if you are traveling).

There's also Bavarian Beads, have gotten 4 of their presses now and they're really easy to use. (I found BB here on LE advertising on one of the side banners that pop up - gave them a try, and was very happy with the service and the presses).

Just kiddin'! No worries...better twice than not at all, right? Her presses look beautiful and her bead work is over the top!!! I'm hoping she can be talked into either making a 3-D Skull Press or at least doing a pay-per-view Tutorial on how she makes them! They are bomb!

I thought her tools were adorable, and I like her designer tool idea.

Default Good Glass Co

I frequently see this ad on the left side of the LE walls here. It is for the Good Glass Company. Has anyone ever purchased the Multitool from them? I had questions about the tool, and have emailed them twice and get no reply. Is it possible that the owner is a member here?

Note: the link in the first post for Good Glass Co is wrong. It seems to be copied from the one above it.
