Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
May 16, 2010

Question:

I can’t seem to keep from scratching or nicking the wire when I wrap.  I have very shaky hands, but I refuse to give up.  Would a nylon tip pliers help when pulling the wires on a cabochon?

Answer:

I admire your determination. My advise would be to cover the tips of the pliers you use most often for this one procedure with a single layer of tape, as it is my opinion that nylon jaw pliers are too wide and thick to grasp that top wire tightly enough to do a good job.
