Missing scissors. I have a million pair of scissors and I can never seem to find a pair when I need them? Where, oh where do all of the scissors go?!

Thank you! You are too kind. :)

Re: Silver tattoos

These are beautiful.

Re: Beaded Flowers

It looks like the Art Accentz line is officially on close out. Now is your final chance to stock up. The manufacturer has discontinued this product line. :(

Re: Beaded Flowers

Thank you! :)

Re: Beaded Flowers

Aren't they beautiful? Each petal is made of just double sided terrifically tacky tape. The edge of the petal is a finely coiled Artistic Wire (coiled in a mini twist n curl), I believe where the coils meet is where she twisted the stem for each flower. Then used florist tape to bring all of the petals together into a flower. Brilliant. Diane Trepanier is a creative and intelligent designer - that's for sure! :)


Re: Another very fine design

I plan to get free project instructions up on our website someday. It is on my very long "to do" list! :)

There are 12 colors in Soft Flex Wire as well as copper, antique brass and bright silver - so there are lots of other color options for the medium wire that is exposed!


Re: DIY Paper Projects Perfect for Your Next Party

Love this!

Re: Spotlight on SoftFlex

Hi Susan,

Our product line has really expanded over the years. When we started out, there was just one diameter of Soft Flex Wire (.024/Heavy) and it was being hand measured and spooled. Now we have thousands of products. We really take pride in our selection of gemstones - so thanks for noticing them. We carry semi-precious and precious stones at shows, in our gallery and online.

Thank you for the lovely write up and for using our products in your designs.
