Broken...

I was working on a wire-wrap project, when all of a sudden, the pliers broke! Part of it just snapped off. It's sad considering how much I used them and was attached to them. The caption should read: Abused with Love.

I have some pliers to show you my buddy. Visit my booth at Bead and Button. Cynthia already saw them in Miami but I won't have them here until after Bead and Button.

They are special pliers for engineers and are the finest for what you love to do. I am specifying them for 20 gauge and thinner wire. I love my set and can let you touch them if you don't take them away from me at BnB!

My website has a photo of them. If pliers can be beautiful, these are BEAUTIFUL. Forget Beadsmith! The steel used for the Japanese are cutlery grade. Only the best will do for you.

Heather Wynn, you have some rather tragic plier stories as well. Far worse than mine!

Hey Lisa Kan... I'm excited to see your magic pliers. If I like them, I'll find a way to get my grubby hands on them. Not necessarily your set, but another one. I probably should upgrade to a good set considering how much I use them.
