My lady is about to start on her second mosaic. For the first she used ordinary nippers, but I've offered to get her a pair of wheeled nippers. Does she need them? Are they significantly better than ordinary ones?

Thanks in advance.

YES, they are worth every penny!! She will be so happy that you bought them for her. She will wonder how she ever went without them. My advice is to mark a spot on the nippers with a line to show where you are using them now, then when it is time to turn them because they are getting dull you will have a guideline. Believe me wheeled nippers make a huge difference. You can easily snip any shape quickly. A little practice and she'll be a pro in no time. Try E-bay also the Jennifer's mosaic brand is my personal favorite. Good luck and happy snipping. Please let me know what she thinks when she get s them.
