The Best Jewellery Making Tools To Save On Time
1. Flat Nose Pliers
Maun Flat Nose Pliers – 999 645S
A holy grail in your jewelry making tool kit – flat nose pliers. These will allow you to easily manipulate sheet and wire and effortlessly make a right angle in your pieces. Not only this, but flat nose pliers are also ideal for making rings. Use them for a straightforward way to open or close a jump ring or a ring with a side-to-side action.
2. Wire Cutters
Xuron Wire Cutters – 997 XU08
Another one of the best jewelry making tools is a pair of good quality wire cutters. Cheap wire cutters can wear a lot faster than a quality pair, especially when used for cutting thick wire. So to ensure your wire has a nice clean finish, invest in a good pair of wire (or side) cutters.
3. Jeweller’s Saw & Blades
Vallorbe Glardon Saw Blades – 972 060
Otherwise known as a piercing saw, jeweler’s saws are an essential piece of kit for a busy jeweler. In order to create small, intricate designs, you’ll need a high-quality jeweler’s saw. They’re often adjustable and able to use with a variety of different blades, saving you time when it comes to designing your pieces.
Find blades that only make a slight indentation in the metal and thicker blades that can remove much bigger chunks of metal if needed.
4. Disc Cutters
Disc Cutter Set – 999 772A
One of the most useful tools for a jewelry designer is a disc cutter. Also known as circle cutters, disc cutters are used to punch circles into metal sheets, paper, card, and leather. With a variety of different diameters to choose from, you can tailor the disc cutter to your exact requirements.
If you’re looking to frequently repeat a certain shape, you can even purchase cutters with different shapes.
5. Burr Tools
Busch Stone Setting Burrs – 989 100X
For the simplest and fastest way to shape and polish your designs – use burrs. They come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and materials so that you can find the ideal one to manipulate your design.
