Share on TwitterWhen learning a new skill, knowledge of the tools comes first.
In the process of mastering techniques, for making gift items, three tools are vital:
cuts jewellery wire and pins
2. ROUND NOSED PLIERS
shapes the wire/pins to form loops and rings
3. FLAT NOSED PLIERS
grips components and opens or closes jump rings.
The 4th tool shown is an option/matter of personal preference
4. FLAT NOSED, CURVED END PLIERS
useful for difficult to reach areas
(In the early learning stages it is not vital; some craft practitioners prefer this tool rather than standard, round nosed, pliers)
