It’s a fine day for chain indeed – or a day for fine chain, if you prefer. We have some ultra-delicious dainty chains – small enough to fit through some beads and pendants directly, petite enough to grace the most delicate of throats and ears, and slim enough to use multiple strands to create an en masse effect.
And we even have the tiny little end connectors to go with them!
We also have some stylin’ new ball chain – a dot-dash morse code chain that sends a message – not your grandmother’s ball chain here!
We have quite the growing selection of ball chain, as a matter of fact, including the end connector kidney cap thingies.
But if these fine, fiiiine chains aren’t your thang, and you want chain with a voice, we have chains – if you can call them that – that can be the vocal focal point!
And if chain isn’t your thing at all, how about Black Fireline. Black – finally! In 3 sizes.
No – it’s not what you think it is. Whatever that is. New on the tool front is this Vacuum Hot-Fix Rhinestone applicator. This battery-operated tool has a switch for the vacuum that allows you to pick up the rhinestone, position it, release it into place, and heat it and stick it down.
I personally spent some quality time with this little tool and I have to say – I really like it. It has two sizes of tips, one for small, one for medium to bigish stones, so that you are not constantly having to change tips. The vacuum does work, the sound is not too obnoxious, and the batteries are good for about 3.5 hours of near continuous hot-fixing – which will get you quite a lot done. It has a built-in LED light – which is very useful, and when the light stops working – you need to change the batteries! If love the look of rhinestones, but get bored and frustrated applying them – then give this tool a shot – it takes a lot of the tedium and frustration out of applying hot-fix rhinestones.
Speaking of things to make your creative life easier – Kumi weights! Clip these to your braid to keep an even tension on it for more even braiding.
New Tierracast elements too – for linking, wiring or riveting. Also for clasping, bailing, and hearting. 😉
And finally, I’d like to button it up, or down, with some fabulous glass buttons.
As always – lots of great old stuff and great new stuff here! Cheers!
