My Latest Assistant

1-Step Looper

I’d like to introduce you to my latest acquisition – aka my assistant. This is my 1-Step Looper from The Beadsmith, and I can’t begin to tell you how awesome this gadget is!

I spotted this item on Pinterest and immediately knew that it would be the answer to my inability to create consistent wire loops. You may not think that consistent wire loops are an issue, but let me tell you – decent earrings require consistency!!!

A few months ago I hadn’t even considered working with wire to make my jewellery, but as my desire to try out new things increased, I really wanted to expand my repertoire. Earrings seemed the most natural way to go…

Just look at the images below to see how easy it is to make consistent wire loops with the 1-Step Looper:

Insert your headpin/eyepin into the 1-StepLooper at the point where you wish to make a wire loop
 Squeeze!
Voila! Your loop is perfectly rounded and complete! 🙂

 

Obviously, I’ve picked these images from a variety of sources, but I hope it gives you an idea of how wonderfully easy it is to work with this gadget.

Needless to say, I hope to be bringing you a lot more earrings to choose from in the future, so do keep checking ANeetProduction for new stock!

Santa came to Town!

So, I did it!

Yesterday, I took ANeetProduction out on the road when I attended my first craft fair since launching the brand. I was nervous, as you may already know, but I really needn’t have been.

Ably assisted and supported by my sister-in-law, I padded out my stall with some of her giftware. But I didn’t stop there. I used her table cloth, pin board, lamps, and tree mugs. Even the logs I used to decorate the stall came from her garden!

There was lots of interest in my creations, and I even managed to make a sale (hurrah!). The best part, however, was the opportunity to network with other crafty types and the fact that I could see reactions to my work straight away.
I think I could get used to this!
