Off to teach a seaglass jewellery workshop this morning. Should be okay. No chewing involved. Not unless someone has forgotten their scissors.
Saw a great tip for cutting wire the other day. Think it was the Crochet Crowd vidcast The tip was to cut your wire with your nail clippers. Saves trashing your scissors. In fact I believe this could be the self same implement my dentist used on me yesterday. Maybe he left them in there?
