You can't do that! Actually, there are 4 things nippers can't do. This video shows the work-around.

The Taurus 3 Ring Saw lets you create more of what your imagination dreams up, and create your new and wonderful shapes faster and better. You can cut all kinds of materials including but not limited to stained glass, ceramic tile, china, smalti, stone and more. It's great for cutting tiny details into your tesserae or making large or small free-form shapes, letters, or numbers. That’s why it is so popular…

Why do you need to learn the keystone technique for mosaics? Keystoned tesserae maintain parallel edged goutlines perpendicular to a curve. See examples and how to cut the right shapes here!

This is a "Must Have" for mosaic artists who need to achieve a smooth edge to their tesserae. It is a tool I use on a regular basis and is so easy and fast. Learn more at

You can get several of those glass shapes at the dollar store. And you don't need wax paper, either. Just vaseline! I did something similar with a cake pan. Personally, I would use the circle or heart shaped glass thing and decorate them with crystals for a cosmically awesome candle holder.
