What's the secret to professional looking leaf beads? Leaf mashers!
Simple to use, mashers require little pressure to make the desired shape. You can create realistic three-dimensional glass leaves easily with this innovative tool. The Leaf Masher features a leaf pattern mold atop pliers. Use with hot glass to create leaves which can be used alone for simple projects or with other glass beads, such as a rose, for more complicated projects. Use a number of our different leaf mashers to create a stunning necklace or bracelet with depth and interest. Approximately 1 1/2" long by 3/4" wide.
