A jeweller who appears to have everything is a very daunting prospect when it comes to buying them gifts. But fear not, the our little gift guide would be able to help you the perfect gift for that jeweller in your life. Let us take you on a tour…
I know this looks a little like a fondue set but anyone who does a lot of beading will appreciate a quicker way of stringing and this is exactly what the Spin-n-bead, bead loader provides. Simply load up the unit with beads, insert your curved needle, holding it against the side, spin and watch the beads thread themselves! A great little gadget that any bead enthusiast would I’m sure, be pleased to receive. Just don’t be tempted to fill it will cheese after a few festive tipples.
The gift of knowledge is a wonderful thing and even the most accomplished of craftsmen will appreciate the opportunity to acquire new skills which can be gleaned from a well-produced book. Creating Jewellery in Wood is one such book and offers an insight into what is a perhaps a new material for many, but one which has so much to offer in terms of warmth and finish. Packed with projects and step by step instructions, this book will help you to take that first step into a new genre and would make a fantastic gift this Christmas.
Honestly speaking, I don’t know many jewellers who put comfort at the top of their list when it comes to investment in the workshop. I would say many, if not most, make do in order to purchase tools or equipment that is more pressing and that is what makes this wonderful padded stool from Durston such a thoughtful gift. Fully height adjustable and portable thanks to five sturdy castors, this stool is ideal when moving between workstations and offers great comfort thanks to a whopping 10 cm of padding in the seat. This is going to make anyone who receives it, extremely happy.
Now this system from Foredom takes the bench peg to a whole new level by combining support with a complete extraction system which offers full protection for the jeweller. Complete with padded armrests (yes armrests!!!) this product provides a clear Perspex shield to prevent flying debris from hitting you in the face, plus a collection tray connected to an extraction system to collect any dust produced during polishing, filing or carving. A perfect gift to help reduce fatigue in the hands and improve air quality in the workshop.
I would love this set of pliers. I am not someone who has everything, not by a long chalk, but this set would make a lovely gift. Most of us own at least one pair of classic, flat parallel pliers, but to have them in every permutation would be just brilliant. Set includes chain nose, flat serrated, flat smooth, flat nylon, half round/flat and side cutters, all featuring the iconic box joint, wrapped up in a smart black leatherette case. These pliers are strong, reliable and will last a lifetime so what’s not to love!
We have over 20, 000 products on our site. We are sure you will be able to find a gift for all, including those who are picky and appear to have everything. Get inspired with the help of our Gift Finder and Christmas Catalogue 2020.
