The postie rang twice.
Today was a day for parcels arriving. First one was from my mum and dad who hunted down my tools that I had left behind by mistake during the move.
My dad is nothing if not efficient, every inch of box is covered in parcel tape!
My big hammer, mallet, ring sizers, mandrel, ring clamp, a vice, soldering iron, steel blocks, doming punches and blocks, disc cutters, hole punches, drill bits, stone setting tools and a few other bits and pieces are all now back in my possession.
I just need to find my steel ruler and get a new borax cone and there will be no stopping me!
If that wasn't enough excitement for one day then there was another knock at the door. A delivery man with my semi precious stones/beads.
I had not ordered from this company before so I was slightly nervous as well as excited as I opened my parcel. Everything seems of good quality and I will be able to make some very effective, striking pieces with these stones.
