We went to Honolulu to check out a jewelry supply store recommended by Paul. I needed to buy a few pliers. The place didn't keep much of anything in stock. I did manage to purchase some fine silver wire at a reasonable price.
Many small businesses do not keep inventory on products due to the economy. I have gone into stores that carry one of an item. Island living has many shopping challenges. I will save that for another post.
I stopped in our local bead shop to purchase the nylon tip pliers. I could have ordered them online but I feel it's important to support our local businesses. There was a trunk show going on and I was able to pick up a few beautiful findings.

Welcome to my blog! It's Aloha Friday. Hubby and I are going to our friend Paul's shop to drop off my ring. It's a handmade engagement ring that needs a few tweaks. I will post more about our wedding another time.
We are going out to buy a few tools for our workshop today. I will post a few pictures to document our day.
