Beading Tools: Great Gifts for the Holidays

Are you having trouble coming up with gift ideas for the holidays? If you have bead-loving and jewelry-making friends, chances are they will love beading tools and supplies for their creative endeavors. The designer can't have enough quality tools. And if you're thinking, "yeah, right, my friend does have every tool out there" then we even have the answer for that.

Fresh on the market is the Riveting and Stamping Tool by Crafted Findings. It's new to the jewelry-making world and is one of the few shops right now to offer this revolutionary device. We have a wide selection of stamps and rivets to go along with the Rivet & Stamp Tool. Choose from punch stamps with letters or numbers and add brass, copper, or aluminum rivets. It has never been easier to create burr-less holes into metal pieces and twist in rivets!

Anything can be made into a bead with the Dremel drilling kit. Beware of the addiction! This drilling kit is great for glass, rocks, bottle caps, and almost anything you can think of. Throw in a quick-change collet adapter and a diamond tipped drill bit, and your bead-loving friend is ready to shake up the jewelry world.

Sometimes the basic tools can use an upgrade. Cutting tools are an essential. We are proud to carry a Maine-made wire cutter that is by far the best cutter out there. The Xuron Double Flush Wire Cutter cuts evenly and leaves no burrs or wire leftovers.
