Just over a year ago I returned home from my first meeting about the Breda and said to my husband, “So I’m going to start a tool business and if I quit at any time, I will have the world’s most expensive, one off, pair of nippers in existence.” Since that day, it’s become our own little joke.
For this new tool company to succeed, Breda must be better than any other glass nipper available. Namely, the most comfortable tool for highly repetitive use. That’s the key, a tool just for the unique way mosaic artists use it.
So here we are, a year later and Breda exceeds all my original benchmarks. It’s lighter than expected and takes less effort to squeeze. It employs angles to protect my tendons from injury and it multiplies my force more than any other tool while using a grip position that’s inherently stronger too. I set out to improve on problems I found in other brands and created a unique new class of glass nipper. Breda is the opposite of generic and the opposite of big market applications.
Breda by CLC will be available to preorder at SAMA for $ 120.00 with free shipping for SAMA attendees only. Stop by our table and try it, you’ll see why Breda is the best choice to help protect against repetitive injury as you work and keep this art accessible to those of us who already suffer. Online sales will start shortly after SAMA wraps up.
The new Breda glass nipper is so much more than I imagined. Your body, your joints and your drive to make art will thank you!
