These chain nose pliers work great for opening and closing jump rings when you're making ribbon chokers, bracelets or bookmarks. I use mine--a pair in each hand--every time I make jewelry.
These pliers are about 5 1/4 inches in length and have a return spring in the handles. The pairs I'm using have made over a thousand ribbon chokers and bracelets and I don't see a need to replace them yet. I take care of them and they take care of me.
I ship via First Class US Postal Service within 2 business days of receiving your cleared payment. I cannot always offer expedited shipping international or domestic, please convo me for availability. International buyers, please understand that shipping times--once the package leaves my possession--vary greatly. Anywhere from one week to a month, sometimes more, sometimes less. It doesn't seem to matter how small or large the package or distance travelled, delivery time varies greatly.
Sometimes, on large orders, the shipping calculation gets huge and out of hand. I usually issue a refund for the overage within a day or so of shipping the order. Domestic orders rarely cost more than about $8 to ship. International runs the gamut, but I issue a refund if there's an overage.
