New from Efco, our range of anodised aluminium wires, available in over 20 different colours and varying textures. Soft and easy to bend, Efco’s anodised aluminium wire is perfect for creative jewellery making and hundreds of craft uses. The wires are supplied in two thicknesses: 1 & 2mm diameter and as 5mm ribbon.
These plastic protectors slide over the ends of pliers to give a bit more grip and prevent damage to jewellery wire or other delicate items. Use a heat-gun or hair-dryer to shrink the protector onto the pliers.
The protectors are supplied as a set of four 10cm lengths in three different diameters: 3.2mm, 4.8mm, 6.4mm (x2)
5 new catalogue sections full of exciting new products from Efco for this autumn season.
Papp Art goes from strength to strength; we’ve introduced a new selection of mini (5cm high) letters and numerals; supplied as a complete range in a display case. A new departure are some stylish Papp Art Bookends – these are weighted – so they are practical as well as elegant.
With Christmas getting closer, some cute reindeer and very traditional rocking horse shapes are bound to be strong selling additions to the Papp Art range.

You may have seen in the news reports on the flooding in Germany over the weekend.
Although the the Pfalz region didn’t seem too badly hit – other than a very full and turbulent river Rhine and a lot of waterlogged fields, the rain has caused problems at Efco’s local exchange and they are without internet and phones. Communication is limited to a single fax line and various mobiles!
The latest information we have from Efco is that the phonelines are still out of action, but should be working again tomorrow (5th June)
