Fused Glass Bracelets
I just saw your comments on bracelet forming and I think I can help. When I first started to make bracelets, I had the same problem that you have had with the mandrel tipping over. I had Jayne Persico for another class on patte de verre, and asked her about it. Turns out that the mandrel that most everybody sells is the type on a pedestal (which is what I had). That is not the original one that Jayne designed for the bracelet making. So I purchased one from her site jpglassworks.com and have not had that problem since. I hope this helps.
