- flat nose pliers – these pliers are used for crimping and gripping wire and rings.
- wire cutters – use to flushly cut wire plus thread, leather and cords.
All of our tools are made from stainless steel, which makes them rust resistant and are ergonomically designed for jewellery designers. They feature double box joint which is designed for prolonged use and are light weight and smaller than standard pliers.

‘items lovingly made with the human hand from raw materials with traditional craftmanship’.
It can be functional as well as decorative, often with a great story behind it. A new term ‘the new design’, represents us the craftsperson, hobbyist, artist, designer and artisan.
Why Embrace the Maker Culture?
Generally as a society we are becoming more mindful about our choices: conscious of choosing products which are made using artisan traditions and not mass produced, seeking quality over quantity and things of cultural or personal significance. As a result the maker culture is cooler than ever. This shift to making has not been seen since the early 70s.
Whether you drop by your local market, hunt in the virtual world or shop at your local gift shop chances are the majority of goods are handmade and lovingly made.
And handmade, bespoke, crafted artisan, whatever you want to name it, is now getting the attention it deserves.
But better still there is an alternative crafted lifestyle. A movement of us who are rejecting mass produced goods and supporting local, artisan and fair trade.
Craft is less about doilies and more about a way of life. It is better for the environment, adds some individuality to you and your home, builds community and brings a little joy to our souls.

What The Research Says on Creativity?
Reading about the anxiety and depression overwhelming a staggering 4o% of Australian women it makes me think how important it is to create something. As a society we are in perpetual motion and perpetual noise and according to the research it is the internet and social media which makes us feel anxious and unable to cope or keep up with the ‘rosy instagram’ life we see daily.
And the advice is; to get back to basics, drop perfectionism and just do stuff. Let’s meet and play together, learn a new skill, get into and have some fun with the other real imperfect folk!
