Introducing Graceful Customs Studios' “Hold-Me-Tight Rod Holders”. As you may know there are a few other glass rod holders out there, but my issue with them has always been that they are not strong enough to hold the short ends of the glass rods tightly while I finish making the bead and they hold only one size rod. Made all of stainless steel, it will NOT get hot in your hands, one-piece tool!
With Hold-Me-Tight Rod Holders, you can be sure your glass rod will not move in the flame while you melt the last bit of it…this tool is so strong it will allow you to hold a skinny stringer as small as 1.5mm to a 8 mm rod firmly. These are the most popular sizes.
The tool is so sturdy that you can use it to pull stringers from your short ends too; as we all know with most silver laden glass selling for $100.00 a pound, it is great to be able to use the entire rod of glass.
There is a short U tube video with instruction on its use. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxZn6h81Sck

Jelveh of www.jelvehdesigns.etsy.com has tested this tool and loves it, she won’t let go of her tool for anything; today she told me that after 9 years of making glass beads she has finally found a rod holder & grasper that works awesome.
My friend Cindy Allen of www.workingglassgirl.etsy.com also loves this tool and finds it invaluable.
