5.0 out of 5 stars Serious tool for hobby price., 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love them! Worth every penny, particularly if you have a tendency to mar wire with a tight grip.
Handles are spread quite wide for smaller hands, with not much grip, and can get very cold if stored in unheated places. I use shrink wrap tube to coat the handles, but have used wide rubberbands on my flat nosed parallels just as well.

Fab colour. Robust coating. Good weight for size. Holes are consistent for 3-4 thread passes, and fit together beautifully for daisy shapes.
Petals do flop if spacer beads used between them, but it can be a useful design challenge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for findings, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had expected square wire twisted for jumprings, but not suitable. Has 2 strands that start to unravel when it is bent. This is so loosely twisted that short lengths and trimmed ends separate. It is very soft but does not hold it's shape well.
Not sure what I will do with this now, but will have to be decorative (tiara swirls?) rather than structural or functional components or findings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Large diameter, low density wire, 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Low gauge wire, approximately 2mm with clearly visible patterns. It is VERY light weight (similar to seaside cheapo bangles) and soft to work with and has virtually no spring to it. Not strong or appealing enough for wearable jewellery, but may be useful for mock-ups of heavyweight wire designs at the development stage or Xmas tree decorations.
It does cut easily, so may be OK for kids and crafting.


Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction (Celtic Interest)
Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction (Celtic Interest)
by George Bain
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive resource, content enough for a lifetime., 9 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book puts all others to shame. Exceeds Dover publications entire content in just a few pages. Judging from first few pages there is more densely-packed detailed information there than would be found in an entire glossy colour photo craft book too.
Black and white diagrams look hand drawn, with maybe 20 variations for each 'recipe' of knot per packed page. Formed on a dotted grid, the knots begin with a spine of crossover lines and are padded outwards by an easy to follow number shorthand. Complexity increases logically, but with a sequence of work to follow, look easily achievable. The print is clear but small, so I expect to enlarge pages I will be working from.
My used copy is too musty for more than a quick look before treatment, but I'm glad I found a copy at all.
For graphic design, quilting, stained glass, jewellery making or just doodling, if you have a pencil, you can generate intricate knotwork without tears from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant chunky and stable., 6 Jun. 2014

I know I bought the girly pink one, but I could not stand to have another bland black plastic phone accessory in the house. My husband doesn't like me labelling phone chargers, car adaptors and data cables, but expects me to know which thingy goes with what doodah when he needs me to. Also, I am not colour-blind.
This phone upgrade we ended up with identical black monoliths, and identical, tasteful, but identical black cases were ordered, luckily for me, for the wrong model.
This stand is perfect. I think it's anodised aluminium, and about 4mm thick all over. Cushioned front lip kind to touch screens and has sticky pad feet, so no damage to anything. It supports Sony Experia M2 in both positions when charger connected, (to upper left side of phone) as well as my tablet, his iPad, DS console and Kindle Paperwhite with its' charger cable plugged into the bottom through the cable slot in the stand.
Excellent phone product that is fit for its' purpose at last. Easily the best phone accessory I've ever bought in over 18 years. You should get one quick before I buy up all the stock for End-of-Year donation purposes.

Handy resource for design work. Easily scaled pages for photocopiers and scanners. I would have preferred fewer animal images though.

I use mine as tool caddy for my sewing accessories. Scissors and measures on one side and drawing materials, fabric marking pens, chalk sticks, stitching gauges etc on the other. They are un-drilled on the bottom, which suits me, and sturdy wooden handle and spacer strip means there is no flexing together when carried. Would have got some for bulb planting if I'd seen them earlier.

Light weight but strong enough. Fits in plastic file sleeve, so can be kept safe and handy on the drawing board

Thick plastic, and bright enough not to get lost on desktop. Used very few of outlines so far, as only early drafts of designs made. Centre markings on skeleton rings should be useful for dimensions on final drawings
