I bought these in order to create small clay circles from PMC. I have some small cutters but they have a seam where the metal closes and this leaves a mark which needs to be smoothed. These dont. and they are small enough to cut tiny circles, useful to use to hang focals etc. The little gadget that comes with it is for pushing the clay circle through. I rolled this into a ball and mounted it onto sterling silver wire to give myself an attractive headpin. I guess they are pricey for what they are, but then if I were to have to visit a hardware store to buy several pieces of tubing to make my own then that would cost more. I will use these regularly so all in all a good investment.
This set of 9 brass miniature circle cutters from Joy Funnell is fabulous and so versatile! If you've taken one of Joy's workshops, chances are you've used these for one thing or another! Use them with any type of metal or polymer clay to cut out tiny circles or holes in wet clay, create uniform balls or donuts to reinforce holes, and for stone setting.
The set includes 9 different size cutters (2mm - 10mm) and a separate wire plunger for pushing wet clay out.
It all comes packaged in a tiny plastic pot that won't take up much room in your tool kit at all!
Cutter sizes included: 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 9mm, 10mm.
