Jewelry making tools

 

 

There is a huge range of beading tools available which are very useful but not always essential , here are some of them

 

Wire wrapping tools

 

Pliers

 

A: Round nose pliers (wire wrapping tools)
Round nose pliers are used for bending wire and making loops. This will probably be one of the beading tools you’re going to use most. It is important that you buy jewelry making pliers and not hardware store pliers which are too big for jewelry projects.



B: Chain or flat nose pliers( wire wrapping tools)
They are used for almost everything else, from holding your pieces to opening and closing chain links and jump rings.

 

C: Wire or side cutters
They are used to cut stringing material and light gauge wire. (Never cut memory wire with side or flush cutters, use memory wire cutters instead).

 

 

Crimping pliers:


Crimping pliers are specially designed for crimping beads. This comes in handy when you want to make sure your beads are securely in place.

Other tools as

 

  • Scissors

Small sharp scissors can be very useful for all beading projects.

 

  • Bead Board

Bead boards have a curved groove with a measuring scale alongside with compartments in which the beads can be held while you work. This will end your frustration of all the beads ending up on the floor!

 

  • Adhesives:
    Resin based glues are ideal for use with metal, china and glass. All purpose clear, strong adhesives are useful for sticking non-metal items such as wooden beads.

 

  • Tweezers:
    Tweezers can be one of the handiest tools for picking up tiny beads when stringing

 

  • Beading needles:
    You will need a beading needle when you are working with thin thread and tiny beads. Measuring stick:
    Some or other form of measurement is always useful. I use a metal ruler with inches on one side and mm, cm on the other side.
