A few weeks ago I purchased a new press from a company in Germany and have been practising with it. I love the result, although I do find the press quite tricky to use - especially the smaller cavity. It seems to be narrower at the opening and so when the glass has stiffened up (only takes a second or two) it is very hard to remove from the press. Anyway, I will persevere. I have been using some of the odd lot silver glasses that I can't seem to get to do anything with in a regular bead, and I love the way it comes out different colours and shows off the highlighted areas of the bead.
I have these beads, and a couple more, in my Etsy shop.
Have a great weekend!
