I went into a frenzy this morning looking for my copy of April 2013 Bead Design Studio Magazine. There is a wonderful glass bead tutorial in the issue (there's at least 2 in every issue) by Lori Bergman (one of my bead heroes) that reveals a fabulous trick for getting the right amount of glass for a pressed bead. Now Lori is doing a giveaway connected with the tutorial and the tools used. So while you're at it be sure to check out my absolute favorite bead press maker, Zoozii's. And my next tool will be one of the bead rollers from CGBeads, whether I win or buy.
