Welcome to Off-Mandrel.com!
We sell glass rods and tools for glass bead making and lampworking. Melting glass in the flame is a fascinating hobby, and highly addictive, so if you think you might like to try it, take a look at our Beginners Glass Bead Making Classes.
For those of you already hooked, and seeking more torch fodder, you need look no further! We have your favourite brands of glass rods designed for beadmaking, including Effetre, Vetrofond, Creation is Messy, and TAG. We also stock coloured borosilicate glass rods, in our TAG 33 and Momka ranges.
You’ll find our glass ranges grouped by coe, so you can be sure that all the compatible glasses are kept together – even virtually! They’re also listed by name, so if you’re looking for a specific glass manufacturer, you should find it with no trouble.
Of course, you’ll need tools to push, pull, squish and twist your glass with, so we carry a selection of the most useful. We sell all the lampworking equipment and tools you need to get started, but if you can’t see the tool you want, just give us a call, we can probably get it for you. You’ll also find glass torches and oxygen concentrators, glass annealing kilns and beadmaking starter kits.
We don't just sell this stuff - we use it too! Please pop over to Hamilton Taylor Studio and take a look at a few of the things we make!
