PLEASE NOTE, WE NO LONGER MANUFACTURE PUFFY MANDRELS. MY INSTRUCTIONS FOR THEIR USE ARE STILL ON THIS SITE, AND IN MY TWO BOOKS.
The "Puffy Mandrel" is a high quality steel tube used to blow hollow beads. This mandrel is an adaptation of a tool used at the furnace, scaled down to bead size. Originally made by our friend in Israel, Amnon Elbaz, with his guidance it has been developed and sold under our tradename, "Puffy Mandrels" in the U.S. and throughout the world.
These acrylic cubes measure about 1 inch and are a beautiful way to display you favorite beads in your personal collection. Many artists use them for display on their tables at bead shows. These cubes also solve the problem of gifting a bead to someone who will never wear it. Include a stand and it can delight them near a window, their computer or on a shelf.
BEAD STANDS ARE IN STOCK, 5 FOR $15. PLEASE EMAIL YOUR ORDER TO
