Hang these around your neck. All you add is a chain or cord. We got these bargain pendants for a song (call us the pirates of pendants) and we're passing the savings on to you. You pick from a 2"-across glass starfish that hangs by one curled leg; a 1-1/2" hemispherical slice of purple agate; a 2" x 1" x 3/16" thick slab of brownish geode; a 2" dia blue glass peace symbol or a 2" x 1-1/4" slice of blond agate. All have a 1/16" or larger bore.
All your best beaders know that there's nothing like metallic wire for stinging stuff on. You pick from these 7-strand (although you need a loupe to tell it's not a single strand) copper- or gold-colored bead wire, .45mm and .3mm respectively. You get 40 feet on a dispenser reel that actually works.
Our each is a pack of gold-tone necklace parts including (6) feet of .013" wire, (50) pieces of 1-3/4" long wire, sundry loops at 7/16" and 1/4", 20" of chain and a smattering of barrels and pins. Total is (119) pieces and they will make up to (5) necklaces, depending, of course, on your neck.
Shells are nice, if you've got a beach and a few months to comb it, but busy crafters prefer this pack of (45+) assorted acrylic pieces, including 1" squares, 1-1/8" shells, and tiny beads at just over 1/2" long. What? Oh, okay, there are few real iridescent 1-1/2" shells in the mix, but unlike the others, they don't have holes drilled in them.
And our favorite copper craft wires are the ones that aren't copper-colored. You pick from: a 24-foot spool of 20-gauge magenta copper wire; 7-foot spool of 16-gauge green; or 7-foot spool of 16-gauge teal. The stringing and binding opportunities are close to endless.
Crafty artistes will love this selection of 12" square materials waiting for a creative person to use them. You pick from (16) sheets of lightweight corrugated cardboard in (6) geometric patterns or (15) sheets of treated burlap, (5) each in charcoal, tapioca and tree bark brown.
You might think this 32-foot coil of flattened craft wire is copper-colored, but it’s not, it’s tangerine. Says so on the back of the package, and they can’t lie there. Nice stuff anyway, at 3/16” wide x 1/32” thick. Go wire some fruit.
The Princess pack of craft pieces, from Kaizen. You get (20) packs of a whole bunch each (10 to 20, depending on size) of shiny or sparkly butterflies, hearts and stars, all approx 3/8” to 3/4” in pretty princessy colors. They all have teensy holes for stringing them along, or you could just scatter them on tabletops during parties and spend the next three years finding them on the floor.
