You could take a quick jaunt across the Channel - I've heard they're a lot cheaper in Europe too!

Hrm, somehow I see the cost of that travelling negating the savings I would have otherwise made Wink

Thanks, though!

They ship free worldwide, so you could order from them directly:
http://www.addineedleshop.com/

Thank you! They seem like a great place to get things I can't otherwise get here in the UK so I'll keep it bookmarked. The trouble with the Addis is that I can get them for half the price from my LYS. (I was desperately wanting to avoid my LYS because of some negative experiences there, but it seems I have little choice.)

Thanks again Smiley

Dear Craftsters,

I'm hoping you can help.

I'm desperate to start knitting some gorgeous lace doilies that I've found, but I need very small DPNs 1.5mm to 2.5mm. I've seen that Addi make these and I was wondering if anyone knows of where I can purchase them here in the UK.

(I'm also interested in their "matching" (same size) Lace Circulars, so that information would also be appreciated)

Very many thanks!

Recently I posted this post...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=296324.msg3373131#msg3373131 Which got mixed reviews so I decided to start again...

These are the new bits...






I don't have time to re-do them but would still love comments and criticisms!

That is so cool how easy-peasy that is...and that bead with the wire wrapped around it would look pretty as a matching pendant for "her".

Funny you should mention that. I did take the circle of one of the toggles to make his wife a matching necklace

28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bead cufflinks tutorial (Image heavy) on: May 14, 2009 02:06:11 PM
Because catdaddytn asked, I decided to photograph the cufflink-making process today as I made some more pairs.

Here's a shot of what I used (Please forgive the shank buttons. They're wonderful to use, but the rest of the photos show actual beads as the process is a little more involved.)

Various pliers and wire cutters, shank buttons (beads), toggles (from toggle clasp sets. I use the circle bits as parts of pendants), jump rings and eye pins.


The parts I used in the actual photos you will see...


Slipping the eye pin through the hole in the bead, bend the pin forward over the bead, making sure there is enough of the length that you can also bend the eye -up-


Bend the free end of the pin over the bead as well and pass it next to the part of the pin that has the eye and is now sticking up (shaft)...


Making sure the end isn't too long (you might have to cut it shorter) wrap the free end of the pin around the shaft of the pin...


In the eye, connect two or three jump rings, depending on their size, forming a short chain...


Add the toggle to the end of your chain, making sure all of the links are securely closed...


And there you have a cufflink.

Repeat the above steps for a pair Cheesy

Wow.

The title of your post misled me a bit. I wasn't expecting something so simple and yet so dramatic in it's beauty. I can see why you're so pleased with it!

It's going on my "Covet" list!

Great work Cheesy
