What's New
Fireline - More thread on a smaller spool

Fireline - More thread on a smaller spool

The economical 300 yard package of Fireline 4lb and 6lb test is now available on the smaller size spool! The old spool on the left was 5.5" in diameter and 2" thick!! The new spool on right is only 4.25" x .75".
Much easier to store & use. Order directly from a fishing supply store to really save big $$. These were $29.95 from Cabela's

Ferido is a 2-part epoxy that when blended in equal parts can be formed into beads or used as an adhesive for flat back crystals. It can also create collage & montage assemblages featuring an assortment of findings, stones, & found objects. Anything goes because the completed item doesn't need to go into a kiln or oven, it air dries in a few hours.
