Fish Fin Tweezers
  $16.95

Fish Fin Tweezers with Detail TN

We have been making this tool in a pliers version for many years. Now we are making them as tweezers. Just as wonderful a tool, but at half the price of the old pliers version. These clever little mashers press a blob of molten glass into a delicate, bead scale fish fin, two fin bones wide at a time. Just heat the glass and mash it side by side repeatedly to make a wider and wider fin.

One version has a straight end to nest up tight to a cylinder shaped bead or straight edged form. The other has a curve to it to more closely follow a curved form. Either will work on any type of base form nicely. Top view of tool to show pattern and side view to show the ergonomic handle.
