Janet's comments about her favorites:
69-281 Lortone Rock Tumbler
I LOVE tumbling my wire wrapped pieces after antiquing them with liver of sulfur and watching the shine pop in the higher areas. Lortone makes the best tumbler. Do NOT settle for cheap barrels as they will degrade, and ruin your jewelry. Trust me, I speak from experience!
69-282 Stainless Shot - for using in my Lortone tumbler
69-355-08 Shine Brite - I like this product even better than using Dawn dish soap!
44-785-19 Oval copper stamping blanks with hole
These blanks are great for stamping on, antiquing the letters/designs, and then polishing to a high shine. I enjoy stamping on all of our stamping blanks, truth be told.

63-528 - Euro Tool Polishing pads
These pads are amazing! They polish extraordinarily well on brass, copper, sterling... These polishing pads complete me.
61-004 OneG Thread (beige)
I love this thread for seed beading! It is superior to Nymo, in my opinion. The color is easy to use with most all beads because it is neutral. There are other colors that we have available that work well, too. (61-001 black, 61-002 white, 61-003 lt. gray)
69-270-05 Lindstrom flush cutter
I can't do without my Lindstrom tools. They are second to none.
69-409 Lindstrom Shear
Speaking of Lindstrom, if you need a great pair of shears for heavier metal projects, this one also can't be beat.
69-235 2 hole punch by EURO Tool.
I really like the ease of using this two hole punch for my metal discs and metal projects.
