The OttLite: A Crafters Dream

Disclosure: This product was received from OttLite for review purposes only. All thoughts and words in this post is my own and I was not paid to endorse it. I am only voicing my opinion about this product.

I’m an avid crafter.  I do papercrafts, work with silk flowers and I’ve recently gotten into beading and jewelry making.  My eyes aren’t what they used to be AND I tend to work at night.  This means that I need good lighting in order to see what I am doing. So, I was super excited when I found out that OttLite was sending me a 22w Ultimate Mag and Storage Station!

22w Ultimate Mag and Storage Station from OttLite
“The 22w Ultimate Magnifier Lamp and Storage Station is packed full of smart, helpful features making it our best hobby/craft lamp yet! The fully adjustable optical-grade magnifier provides a sharp, distortion-free view of the finest details. Multiple storage options and a flexible “extra set of hands” make it the perfect magnifying lamp for beaders, sewers, fly tiers, model builders and more!”

This baby is absolutely awesome.  The organizer in me fell in love with the storage capabilities.  There is a space for just about everything that I use when making dangles to add to Pocket Letters or planners.

My old eyes fell in love with the natural light and get this…the magnification! Just lift the top and voile…a “5 inch 1.75x optical-grade glass magnifier surrounded by a Powerful 22w circuline tube.”

  • Built-in flip cover protects lens from dust and scratches when not in use

I honestly could not be more thrilled with this light.  It’s PERFECT in every way. But if you aren’t a beader, that’s ok.  It works great for sewing, model building, fly tying, and just about any other work where you need good light and magnification.

The size is just right for desktop use.
