If you want nice looking jewelry, get yourself a good set of tools!  Other than having nice beads, this is one of the most important investments your will make in your hobby or business. Good tools are easier to work with and make your hand work look better. They don't wear out as easily and they cause you less fatigue which leads to greater enjoyment. Tools with ergonomic handles are more comfortable to use.

Always buy the best tools you can afford. I can't tell you how often we hear people say "I need a new "this or that" the old one isn't working good or it fell apart. Although all of our tool products work great, I prefer the ergonomic style handles which are much more comfortable.  I would be happy to make recommendations if you want to send me an email with a little info about what you are making and how you use your tools.

Be sure to get a protective case or toolbox to keep them in.  The art supply stores carry a nice one with lots of tray slots. I have an "Art Bin" brand box that is over 10 years old and it is still going strong.
