Findings for knitted wire jewellery

To make it easy for you to choose the correct findings, I have put together packs with selections of everything you might need. Although there are instructions in my pattern, each pack includes more detailed information and pictures.
If any item normally included is out of stock then a substitute will be made of equal or greater value.

E6000 Glue - Large size (pictured) 110ml 3.7oz £10 (only 4 left), Small size 9ml 0.3oz £2 (only 3 left)

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 also 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.
A great glue!
