Saw some lovely bracelets made with regaliz leather on Etsy, new computer and cant seem to copy a link but search on this on Etsy to see what I mean -  Floral Lampwork Cranberry Regaliz Leather Cuff Bracelet

I have a piece of this leather but does anyone know where I might get a mandrel to match? I'm going to contact the seller but she might not want to share!

Had a quick look at the bangles..which are gorgeous.

Helen, do you think she may have made it on something like this:

Hi Linda
I have on of those for shaping silver, they are very heavy and the size increases along the length.

It looks like such a brill idea that I think someone must make them. Saw some on a site in the states but the imperial measurements only give one side. Been cheeky and mailled the maker but I bet she says its a hand made tool.

Oh yes.
They look a likely bet, Josephine.
The bead release factor would make the finished and cleaned bead not as flat, so you may have it there
