The Perfect Tool for Quick and Consistent Wire Wraps

Here is a tool that will make the finishing touches a lot easier and improve the quality of your craftsmanship - the flat nose plier with a tip.

These pliers come with 1mm, 1.5mm or 2mm tips and are perfect for getting into tight spaces. These pliers will also guarantee the same size coil every time when you use these pliers to create your bend before looping - see photo. Use the narrower tips for smaller gauge wire such as 28 or 26 gauge and the 2mm tip for 24 gauge wire. For project that require a large number of wraps, these pliers will allow you to work quickly yet with consistent results.

If you have more questions about these pliers, please give me a call!

You can purchase these pliers online at BeadBee.com.
