Cat’s Verdict on Quick Links

Quick Links are handy little findings that can be used in a variety of ways. Available in a range of shapes and sizes, they can be chained together to create linked jewellery or taken out of context completely to create more versatile craft projects. A classier way of using hardware in your crafting, Quick Links give a nice professional finish to a project.
