AMACO® Offers Jewelry Makers Beads and More

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - AMACO® (American Art Clay Company), a leader in the art supply industry, takes bead making to a new level, just in time for the holiday gift giving season. 

Bead rollers from AMACO® are the season's must-have for aspiring and professional jewelry makers alike. Bead Rollers make it easy to create uniform beads time after time. Once the AMACO® modeling material is placed in the bead roller, the back and forth movement of the top and bottom pieces of the roller creates perfectly shaped beads. This is just one example for the user-friendly design of bead rollers from AMACO®.

Making handmade beads is an enjoyable craft, but making uniform beads freehand is often difficult and time consuming. Bead rollers combined with AMACO clay offer even the beginning bead maker the opportunity to create beautiful jewelry to give, wear or share. Almost any type of modeling material can be used with the Bead Rollers to create beads. Polymer Clay is especially popular, although other types of clay and material, like AMACO's Friendly Plastic®, can be used too. Tri-Bead Roller is AMACO's most popular bead roller and features round, oval, and bicone shapes.

AMACO® is a company known for quality goods. Bead rollers and jewelry making supplies continue this tradition of excellence. The bead roller is constructed of heavy-duty acrylic, designed for repeated use. Other highlights include AMACO'S selection of bead rollers with both a top and a base. For use, the modeling material is placed in the base of the roller; the top of the roller is then attached, and rolled back and forth against the modeling material. This repeated action results in a perfectly shaped uniform bead.
