I LOVE this little gadget - so handy, so portable, so affordable, so absolutely wonderful for taking your projects from "that's nice" to "Oh my GOSH, that is absolutely gorgeous!! Where did you find this (choose one: card, book, shirt, purse, pair of sneakers, cell phone slinky with my name on it, etc.)!!" I highly recommend purchasing the kit version instead of just the tool unless you're purchasing a backup (an excellent idea; I think I will!) - the kit is so chock-full o' stones! Did I mention I LOVE this thing? The only suggestion I would make would be to add a little wire 'kickstand' on future models to keep the tip elevated or the tool from accidentally rolling off your work surface. Also, I would add the little stone placement sticky stick to the kit. I would definitely remove the batteries if you're packing this tool for travel. I can just see my bag getting squashed by something else and accidentally sliding the switch and mashing the button - God forbid!! I will be making further purchases of this tool, this kit, and more stones in the near future. Thanks!
This is one tool that I honestly reach for again and again for my projects! The gems look amazing and I love that you have so much more control attaching the gems.
Check out this 2 cool tips and tricks video on the blog, it helped me a ton when I was first getting acquainted with my new pretty i-rock!:
This is a fun little tool. I was able to effortlessly add bling to my daughter's birthday card in literally a few minutes. I wouldn't have added as much bling to that project if I hadn't had this tool because it would have taken too long and would have frustrated me, too!
The iRock is easy to use and works beautifully. As a nice little surprise, it comes in a clear zip pouch and a wonderful assortment of bling to add to your projects.
Totally cool product that I saw a friend use and wanted to have in my own collection. I used the jewels and stones on Christmas gifts and it was so easy! Caution: don't hold the heating tool on the jewels too long or extra glue comes up around the sides.
I bought the kit along with extra stones and jewels and four empty viles that I could store my "extras" from the kit in. I love this new tool and I can't wait to use it again!
