Well, I have to say, I am really impressed with the jewelry supplier Rio Grande, http://www.riogrande.com/. I ordered some items yesterday afternoon, decided to ship UPS as it was cheaper than regular post (go figure) and the parcel showed up this morning!! Wasn't even delayed at the border! I hadn't even had time to go out and buy the vice that I need to use with my new supplies.
Soon I'll, hopefully, be making my own jumprings instead of having to purchase so many. Should save myself some money. Now, if I can just manage to wrap my head around the Aspect Ratio problem :-(
