    Finger calluses

    Yes, mine go away too when I stop for a while...but while I have them they hurt and split open...making it really hard to work.

    Finger calluses

    I was wondering how others deal with the calluses that form on their fingers from using pliers? I've been making quite a few holiday ornaments and the fingers on my right hand are really callused and sore. I've had to stop for a few days to allow a couple to heal after they split open and bled. I've been using gel tubes designed for toes and they help some, but I would like to find some gloves that fit tight, and that I can snip the tips of the fingers out of. Good gripping would be helpful too. Perhaps driving gloves? Any and all help and ideas would be welcome... Brightest Blessings... Martha

    Larger AA Jump Rings?

    I wish I could afford a special order Jon, but it is not in my cards. At least not now. Thanks for looking anyway.

    Larger AA Jump Rings?

    I have been looking for larger silver colored AA jump rings with an AR of at least 1". Attached is a scan of the kind of rings I am looking for. The brass/gold colored rings pictured I found at, of all places, a Dollar Store, in packages of 10. But I would love to find bright silver ones just like them. They are heavy...not sure of the gauge, but large. Any idea where I might find these? I cannot afford a special/custom order so any help where I can find them ready made would be a great help. Thanks! Martha

    New springs for pliers

    I cannot find replacement springs for several pliers like the one in the attached photo...can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Anodised Aluminum Colored Toggles?

    I am not familiar enough with these blanks to see it in my mind...sorry!
  12. Is there any chance you might be making some of these in the future? I love your bright colors, but it is difficult sometimes to get a toggle clasp that looks just right.
  13. I think I am going to try a product called ProtectaClear, made by Everbright. It comes in a spray can. For some reason I cannot paste in a URL, so just look it up on Google and you should be able to find it.

    uploading to the gallery

    Oh, okay. I just thought since the upload process contain a comment about "no album selected" there was something I should be doing to create one so that I could select It later to upload to. Thanks for the quick reply! :-)
