Tool and Supply List

Needle Nose Pliers Wire cutters Standard size clipboard or similar shaped object 22 gauge hobby, craft, floral or beading wire (UK conversion = 0.65mm)

Find hand tools at most hardware stores and online. Find wire at most hardware stores, florists, bead shops, crafts and hobby stores.

Note: The lower the wire thickness gauge number, the thicker and more difficult the wire is to work with. For example: If the wire gauge is 16 - the wire will be much more difficult to work with than if the wire gauge is 22. Try to work with a wire that has a gauge of at least 22.
