I also have the First Impressions mold (it has 3 bead sizes ). The company is based in S. Florida and have high quality products. They ship very quickly.

Here's a link:

Hi "katie" - I'm not sure if they'll ship to the UK or not. I have their phone number and will call for you. The owners and employees are very pleasant to deal with. I'll post the information for you after I speak with them today.

I perfer the CK bead makers over the First Impressions ones.

I have the CK one too - my reasoning for getting it is that the pearls are completely round, not flat on one side like the first impressions one makes.

I will check those out too. I would rather have rounded beading. icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for asking the question and thanks for the information from everyone, I was wondering which mold to order myself and this really helped.

my friend has both, and she says she likes the ck ones better. they make prettier. rounded pearls. the first impressions are a little flatter on back side. i have the ck ones. love them. sharon zambito and jennifer dontz uses the ck ones in their dvd's .

I have 3 brands of bead molds. Only first impressions work for me.

It depends on what I'm doing. I have the CK ones and love them when I want the rounded look. But for some things, having a flat back with works great. I make my own mold in this case.

Do you use these molds to make individual pearls as well? All the molds I've seen make strings. I need to make individual black pearls for the edge of the cake. Will these molds work for that, or is there something else that is used for that?

Yes-these do. I just make the string and then cut them apart.
