I would like to find some gold alligator clips that aren’t in a kit, until I do, Radio Shack and Ace Hardware are my friends. The base of the clip is pretty flimsy metal and to strengthen it, I have epoxied 1/2” pieces of stiff wire inside. The first Helper I made, I didn’t do that and it broke quickly.

These are all in the 6” range, some a little shorter, some longer.

At the craft show, I’m using a paper mache’ model of a hand to demonstrate the proper use in holding the end of a bracelet, not that anyone would ever use them for any other purpose.

-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?

All unique and the designs are very nice.
Thanks for sharing.

Another purpose? Maybe to pick up small items?
