2016 Cold Connection Workshop Aussie Bead Retreat Supplier List

Supplier List for the Forster August 2015 Aussie Bead Retreat

Findings and Wire
 There are many premade commercial cold connections findings available if you know where to go.  Here are a list of fun bits and bobs I have found over the years:

  • Many metal working tools are available for a relatively budget price at: http://stores.ebay.com.au/jamessplace?_trksid=p2047675.l2563  who is located in Australia! 
  • Screw Punch
  • Vintaj Straight Cut Metal Shears (probably similar available at Hardware store)
    • metal shears come in left cut, right cut or straight cut - so as you cut, the seam veers to the *insert left, right or straight respectively*.
  • Ball Pein hammers: Bunnings Hardware
  • Wedge Pein hammer: Bunnings Hardare
  • Rubber Mallet: Bunnings Hardware
  • Planishing Hammer: http://www.jewellerssupplies.com.au/
  • Fine metal files: $2 shop, J-Car or Bunnings Hardware 
  • Metal working tools also available in Australia at Over the Rainbow: http://www.polymerclay.com.au/
