Title: Lining beads with Nortel bead liner press
Post by: HollysHorseHairJewellery on October 14, 2016, 08:27:08 AM
Hello! I'm very new on here. I mainly work with resin encapsulations and make a lot of memorial type Jewellery. Currently collecting bits and bobs to start lampworking (very excited).

I've been practicing coring spare resin beads with the bead liner and it works very well (I still need a little more practice)

I've used copper, silver and just tried aluminium tubing. The aluminium tube seems to work really well and I was thinking of offering this as a cheaper option for clients? Does anyone else work with it and would you reccomend?

Also, I need large hole type Sterling tubing 5mm o/d with thin wall - can anyone help with a supplier in England?

Thank you in advance,
Holly

Hello there, I believe Bellore Rashbel sells thin walled tubing.  :)
