Yes, it’s almost Friday here. I guess I better get this posted in the next 45 minutes to technically still be Thursday. Today you get a fairy tale.
Once upon a time, there was a glass worker (fuser, stained glass panel builder) who had just started lampworking. Although this glassworker had zero intentions of making jewelry, she soon discovered she needed to *do* something with all those beads taking over the house. The ankle biters were taking baths in them, and the spouse was finding them in his underwear drawer.
So she went to a local craft shop and bought the cheapest set of jewelry pliers she could find and some findings and set about making jewelry. After an hour or two of making jewelry, the glassworker’s hands were sore and miserable and the glassworker said something very profound…”this sucketh.” She put away the pliers and avoided making jewelry for a while.
Then one day, the glassworker heard of these super awesome pliers that are comfortable to use. These treasures are called by the name of Lindstrom RX. The cost was much higher than the cheap craft store pliers, but if they really were magical pliers that didn’t cause pain…
The glassworker got a pair of Lindstrom RX flat nose, long chain nose, and round nose pliers and also a set of cutters. Lo and behold, after hours of jewelry creation, the glassworker’s hands did not ache and throb. There was much rejoicing throughout the land (meaning her house).
In due time, the glassworker added the title of jewelry designer and two pairs of the Lindstrom RX bent nose pliers to make chainmaille easier to create. After all, the glassworker had to make sure her minions were properly attired.
