In case anybody is still interested, they moved across the street 1 block north.

2 places. Metaliforous on 46th street off of 6th and Alkraft in the 30s. They sell to the small Jewelry makers and usually sell the metals by the pound. I don't have the links on this computer, but if you can't find the address message me back and I'll get them for you

I like to build the last few inches of the belt on both sides into a full cirlcle, so that  a much simpler closure is needed and the rings at the end don't flop around.  If you don't mind soldering, you can get very creative.  I'm doing a bunch of belts lately and I am using various closures sewn from leather, but you also need to put in eyelets for the lacings. You have the same problem most chainmaillers today have. I had to get into the habit of not creating anything till I decide how to close it first.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I get to be in a craft show! Any advice? on: September 12, 2005 10:11:56 AM
I agree with Melidomi about the low priced stuff. That will be your bread and butter items, in particular with a  young crowd. Display is also very important, do yourself a favor (wish I had done this my 1st time), set up the display before you go there and see how it looks, keep the low priced stuff up front with a sign with the price. There is also a major lesson you will learn the 1st time, develope a thick skin. People will come up and handle every piece and some of them will make faces, others will try to bargain with you even if you are selling them at cost. You must also keep your eyes peeled for the shrinkage, that's another reason to have the low priced stuff up front, it also attracts them to your table. Keep in mind that most of the people at your table will have no idea how much work you put into your craft, so don't take any reactions personal.   
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting needles on airplanes? on: August 30, 2005 07:42:32 AM
Some one that works for the NYPD just told me something that would be of interest. If you want to bring something with you on a flight and not sure if they will let you, and you don't want to risk losing it, put it in a large sealed envelope addressed to yourself and stamped. If they won't let you take it on, they have to mail it. (Not sure what countries besides the US this will work)

What temp does art clay say to fire at? Off hand I think PMC is 1675, for like 20 minutes, someone might want to confirm that.

Nice. Looks interesting, thanks

Oddly enough, most of the serious jewelry designers that I know use art clay as opposed to PMC. Not sure if it because it has been around longer or not. I use PMC because it has nicer colors on the package.  Undecided

My friend recently flew to the Carribean, and checked her luggage. When she got to her Hotel all the beading and knitting stuff was missing out of her luggage. She wasn't told notified that they did it, it was just missing. Considering they left a REAAAAAL expensive camera, don't think it's a robbery.
