April Survey Winner

Written by Diane Rein

Congratulations to Deborah Brooks, the winner of the Cool Tools Survey Contest for April! Deborah has won a $100 gift certificate for taking the time to fill out our survey.

She was excited and told us a little about herself:

“I began my jewelry making experiences 30 years ago using antique silverware and selling my products wholesale and in the last 4 years on Etsy.

When PMC was introduced to the market, I couldn’t wait to try it, as it offered the opportunity for unlimited creativity.  I started my journey with PMC 9 years ago and fell in love with it and have been working with it ever since.  I have incorporated antique buttons, glass, semi & precious stones plus many other materials with the PMC.  I am enjoying recycling jewelry and watch parts to create renewable wearable jewelry.

For the last 23 plus years I have been an instructor with the Great Plains Creative Arts Association. Every April, in Cozad Nebraska, for their 4 day arts camp, I teach the art of working with Metal Clay.  My new tools will expand my ability to create and teach.

I often visit Cool Tools and I have already been drooling over the new antique molds.

Some of the items I love are the Slik conditioner and release, Silver Prep, the AlphaDisc along with the Patina Gel makes working with the clay so much easier.

I thoroughly enjoy being asked to design special items for my customers which challenges my imagination and skill.  I have just received my first, of hopefully many more certifications in working with PMC.

I am so excited and greatly appreciate the Gift Certificate for the new tools, which gives me the opportunity to expand my skill and creative ability.  I can’t wait to try and narrow down which of all the Cool Tools to pick,  which will help me have lots of fun playing while teaching and creating.”

After every purchase at Cool Tools, you receive an email asking you to take a survey to tell us about your shopping experience. Your comments help us understand how we can improve and expand for you. A winner is selected every month. Keep offering us your thoughts and help us congratulate Deb this month!
