gret magnifier for jewelry making – 1.5in Texture Magnifier (Metal) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
This heavy sturdy magnifier is perfect for the tiny items and gemstone beads I work with. I have to be able to see the item well and be able to know the size too. This fits the bill perfectly! And it is sturdy, it will not move like some flimsy items I have seen just like this in stores near me, for almost twice the money!
Cons:
None
Other:
I do not know the original use for this item, but I find it plenty useful for working with my 2mm-4mm beads made out of gemstone. I am now able to examine the bead and/or piece and see all of it real large. I love it/ I wish it had a light somehow in it that would illuminate the piece.
Bottomline:
Buy this even if you have casual use for it. They are very expensive elsewhere. It also has measurement marking that can be seen when you look through the magnifier. A great and handy thing to have.
