Please Pass the Pliers
Dazzle It, Metal Complex, and Wire Banding!
Published: October 15, 2012
|These four tools are the latest addition to the Dazzle-It line of pliers. They're stainless steel, lightweight, and super easy to grip. Shown (from front to back) the roundnose pliers, the flatnose pliers, the bentnose pliers (I suggest using two pairs of these for chain mail projects), and the longnose pliers. Dazzle-It pliers are available from Shipwreck Beads, shipwreckbeads.com.|
|There's nothing complex about these four punch-style pliers by Metal Complex. They're easy to use and each comes with an extra tip. Shown (from front to back) are the 1.8 mm round punch, the 1.7 mm oval punch, the 1.25 mm round punch, and the 1.5 mm square punch. Metal Complex punch pliers are available for John Bead, johnbead.com.|
|This Wire Banding Pliers from Beadalon (beadalon.com) is used to bend wire, but I found it useful for bending filigrees as well. |
