Wire Wrapping

 

I have seen some lovely jewellery made using wire wrapping techniques recently.  Here at Proops we stock lots of tools for wire wrapping and also brass, copper, gold plated and silver plated wire in various lengths and thicknesses.  We even have a wire wrapping kit which contains a few essentials if you are just starting out.  Why not pop over to our website and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

St Patrick’s Day

May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow the rain. (Irish Blessing)

 

It’s St Patrick’s Day this weekend which conjures up images of leprechauns, pots of gold and shamrocks.  Well unfortunately we don’t have the leprechauns or the pots of gold but we do have the shamrocks in the shape of our shamrock disc cutter!

If you are planning a St Patrick’s Day celebration with children, these glue spreaders would be great for arts and crafts activities and the vibrant green colour would fit perfectly with the theme.

If you are celebrating St Patrick’s day have a great time and good luck finding the pot of gold, I may just raise a glass of Guinness myself to cheers the leprechauns who guard it!

Thanks for stopping by.

PS We have lots of other shaped disc cutters available, follow the link and take a little look.

Steampunk

I found a few bits and pieces in with my beads and trinkets which I thought would be perfect for a Steampunk inspired piece.  Are you a fan of Steampunk?   I have been looking for ideas on Pinterest and Instagram and some of the creations are fabulous.  If you have created anything I’d love to see it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Macrame Halloween Projects

Autumn has arrived and with it colder days and darker evenings. It’s the perfect time of year to get cosy and crafty indoors and with Halloween approaching our thoughts here at Proops have turned to all things black and orange. Now I have to confess my macrame skills aren’t the best, but I did find these brilliant Halloween themed macramé crafts on macramelovers.com, along with lots of other ideas, patterns and tips for macrame projects.
