(gentle guitar tune) - [Julie] Hi, this is Julie with Beadaholique and, in this video, I wanna introduce you to a handy tool by The Beadsmith for your wire working. So, these are mandrels, and they have a wonderful stepped design. You get both of them in the set, and there's a bunch of different sizes here. So, at the very narrowest point on the smaller one, it's a 1.5 millimeter diameter, followed by two millimeter, three, four, and five. And then we go over to this one, it goes six millimeters, seven, eight, nine, and 10, and that's the diameter of the round. And also it's really nice 'cause they got these stepped ledges, which help you to balance your wire. So, I'm gonna show you really quickly, I'm not really working on a wire project right now, but I wanna show you how you go about using these. You can hold them, they got really nice handles that don't slip, which is good, 'cause if your working with wire, it can be sometimes a little slippery. I'm just gonna wrap my wire around the 10 millimeter size, and I'm just gonna make a couple of loops, and then, I'm just gonna twist, 'cause I'm not really working on a project. Okay. So, when you pull that off, I have a really nice 10-millimeter circle. And I've done a couple ahead of time just to show you how nice and even they are, so they're all the same size, which is the advantage when you're using a mandrel like this. It really allows you to create uniformity to your designs. Handy little tools, great to add to your tool box. Again, they're by The Beadsmith, and they're meant to be used with wire, and they're available at Beadaholique.
