    Wrapping small tags

    Yeah, I used that weave with the same rings as the kit. Works great for the larger tags, but it’s not flexible enough for the small ones.

    Wrapping small tags

    Anyone have some advice on a weave and ring size that works well for securely wrapping the small TRL round tags?

    Material sources

    AC Moore, in their "Steampunk" section. I sold them out a while ago and they haven't restocked so I'm wondering if it was discontinued. They were like $7 each though so I'm hoping to find something similar somewhere cheaper. That bottle is pretty adorable. Tiny dice are the best. I saw the 5mm ones last year at PAX East and damn near spent my whole budget on them.

    Material sources

    So I know we all obviously love TRL, but there is a lot they don't yet offer (variety of beads, pendants, etc). So I was wondering, after you've filled your cart here, what are your other favourite go-to sources for the rest of your components? Part two of this question is do you know where I can find screw top pendant tubes with an inner diameter of at least 5mm? I've been scouring the internet all night and came up empty, so I'm hoping one of you fine folks might know a source I haven't tried yet. I found one, and now I need more. Tiiiiiiny dice holder.

    Using pliers without springs

    I've never used pliers without springs. Is there an advantage to using pliers without springs, or is it just personal preference?

    How to not damage aluminum rings?

    For aluminum I use one pair of pliers and a jump ring opener. (http://www.artbeads.com/tool-513.html) I think it makes it easier to manipulate the rings without damaging them and really lets you feel what you're doing.

    Wonderful name, and this inlay is epic. Do you have another dog named Willow?

    Oh God..the comments...they kill me

    The $27.20 price on the first set is for the white plastic option, which according to the reviews I've been reading, are junk and too fragile to actually be used as dice. The stainless steel option is $82.
