Rolling Mill Texture Embossing Plate

Ear in the Envelope Inc now carries a variety of Rolling Mill Texture Embossing Plates.

You can find these Rolling Mill Texture Embossing Plates in our Etsy shop at: 


A Rolling Mill is a GREAT jewelry making tool.

A Rolling Mill combined with a Rolling Mill plate can create amazing texture patterns in your metal jewelry.

A Rolling Mill is a heavy manual machine with two hardened steel rollers, a tension adjustment and a crank that moves the metal and a texture plate through the rollers.  The pressure created by the rolling motion presses the design from the Rolling mill plate into the metal.  Adjusting to a tighter tension will create a deeper impression.

Durston is my favorite brand of Rolling Mill.  Their quality is amazing and they accept the thicker Rolling Mill Texture Embossing Plates.

Here’s a link to the Rolling Mill we use at Ear in the  Envelope Inc:


Rolling Mill Texture Embossing Plates - are placed on a piece of dead soft metal and rolled through the rolling mill which creates a beautiful impressions in the metal.

Until now there were a limited number of designs available.  I don’t know about you, but I need variety.

So we took on the challenge of creating a good variety of Rolling Mill plates for our customers.  A group of fantastic artists have been working to create some amazing designs.  We will also accept custom requests for rolling mill texture embossing plates.

These plates measure 3” x 6” with a thickness of just about 1/16” (actual .053”).

***WARNING - Our Rolling Mill plates will NOT work on the Eurotool Rolling Mill.  The rollers will not extend far enough to for the thickness of our stainless plates.  

I recommend using a Durston Rolling Mill.  Make sure that your rolling mill can accept a width of 3”.

Our current list of designs are:
- Puzzle
- Wavey Leaves
- Van Gogh Swirls

*****PLEASE let us know what designs you would like?

Enjoy creating,
Liz :-)

  1. Very interesting, I always wondered how they imprinted things on to hard metal. I would want to get one of these machines. I have a lot of projects that I would want to do with it. http://www.kitchenersteel.com
