Polly Collective PRO Shaping Tool

$27.90 AUD

The handy dandy shaper, presser, ruler, roller is a multi tasking tool that can get the job done with ease! And now offered in the Bigger, Thicker, Customisable PRO version¬†ūüė欆Polly Collective developed this original Shaping Tool for the particular way that she liked to work when hand shaping and pressing beads and earrings - the new PRO version was made with big snakes & hoop makers in mind.¬†

Measuring 20cm long & 9cm wide, the PRO Shaping tool comes in a thicker 4.5mm clear acrylic. This extra length & thickness assists in giving the weight & length needed to roll consistent and well shaped length of clay.

B&V have paired with Polly Collective to offer her tools Made to order, which means you can get specific! Choose from:

  • Hoop Guide, Snake engraving or Classic engraving
  • Metric (mm/cm) or Imperial (inches) for your ruler


HOOP GUIDE engraving
The Hoop Guide engraving comes with the measurements needed to achieve a hoop of the engraved size. For example to make a hoop the size of the first circle, you would need to roll out your snake to a length of 11cm.  

SNAKE engraving
Clay rolled out into lengths has always colloquially been referred to as 'snakes'. This snake design is super cute but also speaks to it's purpose!

CLASSIC engraving
Polly Collectives original engraving design & matched by the regular Shapping Tool. These circles can help you press consistent bead sizes or use as size guides. 

METRIC measurements
Your measurements will be as photo'ed - in mm & cm

IMPERIAL measurements
For our USA friends! Measurements on the ruler and/or guides are in inches
