Quick Tip on how to straighten stickpins and Jewellery wire

Hi folks.  Just a quick wee video tip today.  When I make my stickpins, I usually buy them in bulk from China on Ebay.  Problem with this is, you always end up with bent, wonky stickpins that you need to straighten.  Also, when you use jewellery wire, we have to muck about with the wire and jewellery pliers in an attempt to straighten something that has been wrapped tightly in a circle......you can see my dilemma.   Well, here is a quick tip which won't result in you cutting the hands off yourself, whilst struggling to straighten the wonky little blighters!


I hope to be back soon with a few Tim Holtz Embellishment Kits for sale.  They'll be a mixed selection of Tim Holtz goodies.  So instead of having 18 hanger paper clips when all you need is 2, or 1 set of box corners instead of paying for 3 sets, I have put together various sized kits to cater all budgets.  Also....a Miss Congeniality Giveaway will be announced soon.  Ohhhhhhh!

  8. Wow! Super tip Lee. It's like a magic trick. Also been meaning to thank you for your tip on making a paper template when piercing holes for book binding. I hand sewed all the Order of Services for my Dad's funeral & was still working on them the night before. I would never of finished them in time without the template. Glad I made the effort though as I felt they looked dead posh & that I did him proud. Thanks again, Theresa.
