Coloured aluminium wire 0.5mm - 4 colours only (pictured on left)

Leaf green, blue, lilac & green 94m 4

Aluminium is much softer than copper, but you can mix a few strands in with copper. It is not quite as bright and shiny as the coloured copper.

Great value.

 

 

E6000 Glue with fine nozzle - 59.1ml size 5 New size - supplied in a blister pack

This is an extremely strong multi-purpose adhesive. It is clear, waterproof, non-flammable, paintable and flexible. It is excellent for jewellery making as it fills any gaps.
For joining non porous surfaces, apply a very small amount to each surface, wait 2-10 minutes and press surfaces together. Curing takes 24-72 hours. It is very useful for any projects where you plan to stitch either by hand or machine through the glue as it remains flexible if spread thinly.
