Default Flower and Stem Tweezers

After much searching on LE I found posts concerning this tool.

I don't get how you use it for flowers though, stems too actually.

Anyone?

Maybe to place petals on ? Stem wise... I might use it to nudge my not melted in stem.

Oh maybe it's to pinch the ends of the petal to a point on the stem leaves and petals? Idk.. Shot in the dark here!!

The only thing I can think of is to pull off the excess glass where all the flower petals come together. Also with the stems and leaves. Used to pull the glass away.

Just looks like a pair of tweezers to me. If someone knows how to make flowers and stems from these, I'd be interested to know too.

I have used it to straighten raised stems and vines on my floral beads.
