Seedy, Twisted, Wired – and Wearing Leather!
Geez – sounds like a bad date! Actually – Seedy, Twisted and Wired is all good stuff, and not the boyfriend that your father waited up for with a shotgun!
New wire this week – including Twisted wire! – new from Parawire – some more metallic colours – including this very handsome “Rose Gold” colour – a pinky gold colour – and colour it is – it is still a copper-core wire – easy to bend and manipulate, and way easier on the wallet than actual gold wire would be! Also new is the “Blue Steel” – which, likewise, is not steel. Steel is affordable enough, but would rust, and this is non-tarnish!
(Some cool tools to go with that wire – check out this funky mandrel set or this wire twister – for twisting multiple strands!)
For the “seedy” part – we have a sprinkling of new Toho 8s – now that we have a pretty complete selection of the “standard” colours – we are getting some of the more “interesting” colours – or colour combos – such as Inside-Color Pumpkin/Topaz Rainbow and Gold-Lined Sapphire.
Wait a minute – I hear you say. You said “Leather” – what about the leather? Yes, that’s right – we have added leather strips to our line-up! Rivet onto these, make bracelets – glue onto them – all sorts of possibilities! These are from a Canadian manufacturer that uses all natural dyes – and I have to say – I’m really liking the quality of the leather!
In case all of this new stuff has left you feeling “punchy” – we have some new metal punches! New fonts and some new shapes too!
And if you’d like to make a case for starting a business – you’d probably like to decorate your own business card case! Feel free to bling up this slimline business card case. Or maybe as a gift for a friend just starting their own business? What an awesome shot of confidence that would be. “Here – you’re going to need this,” you say, while handing over the customized case.
