Bummer: Silhouette discontinued manufacturing of the Silhouette Curio in 2021. However, they remain popular with many crafters – especially jewelry makers. If you are interested in the Silhouette Curio, you can usually pick one up on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or your favorite local buy/sell app.
