SKU: 125.282


These Beading-Pearling Tools from Nechamkin are patterned after French Pearloir and Boiteroile Tools.

Raised Bead Tools, when struck into the metal from the back produce a "pearl" on the front of the metal. They can also be used to deeply emboss small areas.  The hollow bead can be used to make small circles or when struck over the pearl from the front, crisps and rounds the pearl defining its edges.

Some refer to this as beading or pearling.

Pearling was used heavily in the chased work of Tiffany & Co. designed by Charles Osborne in the late 19th century.  The hollow and the raised bead tools can be used together or individually and can create pattern and texture by being struck repeatedly over an area.

This 6-piece set includes:

RB-1 Small Raised Bead
RB-2 Medium Raised Bead
RB-3 Large Raised Bead
HB-1 Small Hollow Bead
HB-2 Medium Hollow Bead
HB-3 Large Hollow Bead
