Bridget's comments about some of her favorite jewelry making supplies:
#69-324 BIGkick, Vintaj Edition by Sizzix
I have enjoyed using this with the dies and metal blanks; it is easy to set up and also works with scrapbooking embossing and dies.
#69-194 Dapping Block & Punches, 24 Punches
I've had a lot of fun using this recently with the metal blanks to add dimension to my projects.

#86-420-992 Ranger Patina Kit, Vintaj - Faded Pickup This set has been so versatile to mix together and I've got some great colors out of it.
#86-420-987 Ranger Patina Kit, Vintaj, Metallic - Treasured Heirloom These colors mixed in with others give them a nice sheen.
#69-325-007 Vintaj DecoEmbossDie, Cherry Blossom So far my most used die!

#44-773-009 25mm Oval Aluminum Blank with Hole, 30-gauge These take the patina colors so well and emboss easily.
#49-958-62-AS TierraCast Antiqued Silver Plated ''12'' Charm, 19x15mm My Seahawk friends have really enjoyed these on gifts I've given.
#45-104-17 TierraCast Quick Kit, Charm Keeper Necklace Very easy kit with clear instructions.

#46-309-121-6 Antiqued Brass Plated Bezels for 12mm Rivolis, 1 Loop These are so easy to use and very secure around the crystals.
#41-878-52-12-6 JBB Antiqued Brass Plated 1-Loop Bezel Setting for 12mm 4470 Cushion Square Stone I like that the corners are secure, but don't cover too much of the crystals set in them.
#60-270 EURO TOOL Adhesive, Super New Glue I've used this on so many projects with several materials and have never had any issues with them discoloring or coming apart.
#69-407 Diamond File Set, 4pc These are great tools I've used in so many ways, including tiny areas of my embossed blanks to remove patina that wasn't where I wanted it!
#69-055 The BeadSmith Jewelry Pliers, 1-Step Looper, 1.5mm When I first started out jewelry making, this tool kept every loop looking consistent and finished cleanly.

#40-099-03-1 White Plated Hammered Long & Short Curb Chain SPOOL, 5mm This is my go to chain, has great detail and catches the light more.
#41-050-6 Wire Protectors - Antiqued Brass Plated These are great to match plated metals in your project rather than standard bright silver and gold.
#61-552-03 Leather Cord, 2mm, 25yd - Dark Brown This leather is easy to work with and I have used it to make braided and knotted bracelets.
#61-132-05-24 Greek Leather Cord, 2mm, 5 Meter - Bordeaux This is a true red I have used in a gift to match a college's colors.
