In-house jewelry designer Esther Pollock demonstrates how versatile the EUROTOOL® Beader's Delight Pliers are for bending, shaping, smoothing and cutting jewelry wire all with one handy jewelry-making tool.
Place one end of the length of wire in the groove located on the flat jaw on the Beader's Delight pliers. This allows you to create angles exactly the same distance apart.
Bend the wire over the edge of the jaw creating a 90-degree angle. Repeat to create a total of four angles, creating a square. Use the side-cutters to trim the end of the wire close to the finished square.
Creating a Wire Spiral
Cut the desired number of lengths of wire.
Place one end of the wire in the round-nose portion of the pliers. Rotate the pliers to form a loop on the end of the wire.
Place the loop between the flat jaws then pull the wire around the loop, rotating the resulting coil to the desired width. Use the round-nose portion of the pliers to form a loop on the end of the wire.
