Handheld Aluminum Marver. We have used this marver and we believe there is no comparison to how well it works over an ordinary graphite marver. Your glass rolls better, smoothes better and maintains its heat so much better since the aluminum will heat up quicker than graphite. Will not over heat and stick no matter how much you use it. As soon as you use it, you will ask yourself why you ever used graphite.  Plus, it costs less than graphite. 2 x 3 x 1/2 inches. $11.95 each.

DONUT BEAD GRAPHITE ROLLER/SHAPER

Now with 8 slots.  :)

   
Made in the USA, exclusively by Devardi Glass. This great roller/marver makes donut shaped beads easily and fast, usually in one pass. Two sided, eight slots. Marver measures 3 x 2-3/4 x 1 inch. Slot sizes, from small to large: 1/4 inch width - 3/16 & 1/4 inch deep. 3/8 inch width - 1/4 & 3/8 inch deep. 7/16 inch width - 5/16 & 7/16 inch deep. 1/2 inch width - 3/8 & 1/2 inch deep.

 To figure bead size, multiply the depth by 2, and add the mandrel width. For example: The 3/16 inch deep slot, using an 1/16 inch mandrel, will produce a 7/16 inch bead.

ROUND BEAD GRAPHITE ROLLER/SHAPER

Slot width sizes: 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 & 3/4 inches and will make these sized beads using a 3/32 or 1/8 inch mandrel. Mandrels with other thicknesses can also be used, such as a 3/16 inch (5mm) big hole. However, these beads will have a slightly wider diameter than height. The mandrel thickness adds to the width of the bead. This marver is cut so that with the addition of a 3/32 or 1/8 inch hole from the mandrel, beads will be round, with the same thickness as the height. We will be producing a marver specially made for a 5mm big hole mandrel soon.  :)

Same rubberized handle as marvers above. $17.95 each

 You can use these as mandrels for the knob maker marver above. Don't coat them with bead release. Make the knob right on the end of this threaded rod, on the bare metal so the glass will stick. Anneal. Then, cut the threaded mandrel about 1 inch from the knob and smooth the end. This will allow you to attach the knob to a cabinet door. Drill a hole in the door, insert the threaded rod, and place a nut and washer inside. You can also use the threaded rod to screw onto a cork for use as a bottle top.  $3.89 ea.


 
GRAPHITE MARVER

Here's another crazy cool marver exclusively by Devardi Glass. Made in the USA.

Make all kinds of neat glass items with this fancy marver: Pen handles, letter openers, silverware handles, even chess pieces, and so much more. (We'll be adding many more of these different marvers soon for making a complete chess set, or other gorgeous glass pieces.) You can roll glass on the entire width of the marver, or just just a portion, depending on how long of a bead you'd like to make. Marver measures 3 x 1.75 x .75 inch. If you use the entire width of the marver, your bead will measure about 1.5 inches, and about 3/4 inches at the widest girth. The bead in the picture was made on a 3/16 inch mandrel. If you use a thinner mandrel, you can make thinner beads.  Marver FB-1  $16.95 each

   
   
 

Tip: You can also use just a portion of the marver to make shorter fancy beads. :)

Other side

NEW - Vessel Maker and Olive Bead Graphite Roller Marver. Made in the USA exclusively by Devardi Glass. Double sided. Makes vessels easily in two sizes. Add glass to the mandrel completely over the end. Roll a couple times, and you have a cute vessel. Flatten the bottom by pressing against a flat marver, and the vessel will stand up.
 

Overall marver measures 2 x 3 x 1 inch. Grooves are 1 and 1-1/4 inches wide. You can also use our Vessel Mandrel for a tapered neck inside. For wider vessels, simply use a wider mandrel. The one in the picture below is a 3/16 inch mandrel.

$17.95 each
   
   
   

Makes Olive Shaped beads too. :)

You can use our Vessel Mandrels if you'd like a tapered inside neck.

 

 

   
Three Slot Disk Shaper. Another great graphite marver made in the USA by Devardi Glass. This marver makes disk beads in three shapes fast. Great for Pandora bracelet beads too. Each slot measures 3/8 inch wide. Marver measures 2.5 x 2.5 x 1 inches. $19.95 each

 

 

The slots in this marver measure 3/8 inch deep. That means the width of your bead will be two times 3/8 plus the width of your mandrel. For example, using an 1/8 inch mandrel would produce a 7/8 inch disk bead (3/8 + 3/8 + 1/8).

 


   
 
NEW: 2 - Sided Three Slot Disk Shaper. Some of our wonderful customers have asked for a more shallow cut to produce smaller beads. So we are now offering the Three Slot Disk Shaper with the same slots as above, plus a second more shallow set on the reverse side. This second set of slots is cut 1/4 inch deep. The size of your beads using these 1/4 inch deep slots will be two times a 1/4 inch plus the width of your mandrel. For example, using an 1/8 inch mandrel would produce a 5/8 inch bead (1/4 + 1/4 + 1/8). The slots are still 3/8 inch wide.

Other side below. Profile view below.

MARVER/SHAPER SECONDS

 

Great deal on Marver Seconds. These marvers have slight flaws that keep us from selling them as Grade A marvers, but are still great tools and very usable. The holes may not be centered on the graphite, or there could be minor scratches, chips on the corners or other rough spots, (no cracks in the graphite).

These come as a random selection from the marvers and shapers on this page depending on what we have in stock. The picture to the left is just a sample. We choose what to send. No duplicates will be sent. You won't be disappointed.
