Default Angled Tweezers

Hi, I'm looking for a pair of angled tweezers. I've seen people using in their videos but I can't seem to find them anywhere. Any ideas? Thank you.

These look really great, and the review says they sell them at the big craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I think I need a pair, too.

I have one like the one the OP shared except mine has green rubber for the finger grip. There no label with the company's name. Just wanted let you know to look/ask for reverse tweezers.

Default Ellen Hutson has my favorite tweezers

Ellen Hutson has four styles of tweezers, and my favorite is shown here: Tweezers, Stainless
Its arms are long enough to hold something I'm embossing and keep my fingers out of the heat, and the points are fine enough to grip pearls, rhinestones, or brads and hold them while I work at placing them. I've had cheap versions from the big box stores and they have barely been worth their price.

I have the Tweezer Bee ones that Bugga linked to in her post and find them very good. You do want to decide though whether you want not only angled but "reverse" tweezers or whether you prefer the regular action. The ones Alice links to at Ellen Hutson have the regular action that means you squeeze to close the arms of the tweezers to hold an object and the reverse action ones like the Tweezer Bee are closed until you squeeze to open them.

One of the things I like about the Tweezer Bees is that the grip when they're closed is quite firm so you can use them as an extra hand for fiddly jobs like tying a bow in twine.
