New jewellery tools
I had a bit of a spending spree last week and although I already have lots of tools I had some new pliers in my sights. I use my Lindstrom pliers on a daily basis and I love them but I needed another set of chain nose pliers and couldn't really afford more Lindstroms. I have also been keen to try Wubbers for a little while now so this seemed like the ideal opportunity. I bought a pair of Wubbers chain nose pliers and a pair of Wubbers looping pliers specifically designed to make loops with 20 gauge/ 8mm wire. I also bought a pair of Beadsmith magical crimp forming pliers because I really hate crimp bead cover beads, it's an irrational loathing I know but when I saw these it was a no brainer.
I am going to give them all a go this week and I will let you know what I think of them.
and just because I can't buy tools without silver to play with....
In case you have noticed that my lampwork beads have been a bit thin on the ground recently, fear not... I have the de-humidifier working flat out in the shed and will be donning my galoshes later this week to fire up my torch.
