it is light weight and easy to handle, works like a charm to get to those places I want to bedazzle and thought I could not. Works on all material I have used it on including plether. The work I have done looks so cute for the grand kids and also for the adults. Pretty classy in some cases and just plain adorable in others. I can put them far apart or as close asI want to like in a cluster of flowers. I am very happy with it.
