Jewelry making tools used when making jewelry with wire and beads.

Jewelry Making Tool Kit by WigJig
WigJig Jewelry Tool Kit
 



Our WigJig Jewelry Tool Kit (Item 4000) has the four basic tools required for making jewelry by hand in a convenient nylon wallet.  The items included in this kit are our round nose pliers, our bent chain nose pliers, our chain nose pliers and our economy cutter in our vinyl wallet.  Three of these tools are permanent tools that we use ourselves every day.  The economy flush cutter is an inexpensive tool and we recommend that you will ultimately want to replace this tool with our Flush Cutter Ultra.

Not included in the kit, but also tools that a beginner will want are our fine step jaw pliers, nylon jaw pliers, and bent closing pliers.  These tools are shown below.

WigJig Round Nose Pliers Jewelry Making Tool

Tips of WigJig Round Nose Pliers Jewelry Making Tools

These round nose pliers jewelry tool (Item 4001) provide smaller, finer tips allowing you to make small and delicate wire components.  The jaws are 16mm long.  These shorter jaws have less twist when making loops close to the tips and therefore allow making smaller loops more consistently..  At the tips, the jaws are slightly less than 1mm wide.  This allows you to make smaller loops consistently.  We believe that these round nose pliers provide the best functionality available at any price.  These pliers are 5" long. (New Low Price!  Formerly $17.95.)

WigJig Bent Chain Nose Pliers Jewelry Making Tool

WigJig Bent Chain Nose Pliers
(Item 4002)






WigJig Bent Chain Nose Pliers Jewelry Making Tool

These bent chain nose pliers jewelry tool (Item 4002) have a tip that is 1mm wide.  We believe that this narrow tip is important when grasping a loop to make a wrapped loop.  The jaws of these pliers are approximately 28mm long.  Just like the round nose pliers above, we believe that these pliers provide the best functionality available at any price.  These pliers are 5 1/2" long.  (New Low Price!  Formerly $21.95)



WigJig Fine Step Jaw Pliers
 




These Fine Step Jaw Pliers jewelry tool (Item 4003) make loops of defined sizes without marking the jewelry wire on the outside of the loop.  This is because the flat jaw on the pliers spreads the gripping force and does not mark the wire.  The first step is 1/16", the size of the peg for the WigJig Delphi, Cyclops and Centaur jewelry tools.  The second step is 3/32" the size of the peg for the WigJig Olympus, Olympus Lite or Electra jewelry making tools.  The third step is 9/64".  The jaws of these pliers are 27mm long.  If you want to reduce tool marks on your jewelry, we strongly recommend this tool.  We make the initial loop on every  piece of jewelry that we make using these tools.  These pliers are 5 1/2" long.  (New Low Price!  Formerly priced at $14.85)

WigJig Nylon Jaw Pliers Jewelry Making Tools

WigJig Bent Closing Pliers Jewelry Making Tools
WigJig Loop Closing Pliers
 




WigJig Loop Closing Pliers Jewelry Making Tool

These Loop Closing Pliers jewelry tools (Item 4005) are used for closing a small opening in a loop without marking the jewelry wire.  There are grooves in the face of the jaws of these pliers.  These grooves allow you to grip the sides of a loop in a piece of jewelry wire without having the wire slip.  Then you can gently squeeze the loop to close any gap.  These pliers are 5" long.  New low price!

This is absolutely our favorite cutter. Smooth spring return and ergonomic cushion grip handles with induction hardened jaws. This is a jewerly tool you need!

 


WigJig Jewelry hammer jewelry making tool.
Jewelry Chasing Hammer
 







Use either face of this hammer (Item 0353) to harden and flatten jewelry wire (please tap gently on Artistic Wire). The flat face is larger than our other chasing hammer - 1-1/4" inch in diameter. This hammer has a slightly rounded face on the flat side.  We love the rounded and bigger face of this hammer, since it facilitates the hammering of an entire jewelry wire design in one hit.  The rounded face also helps to flatten the design, but not mark it, avoiding a "hammered" finish. Use of the "peen" side of the hammer will result in riveting of the jewelry wire, providing a "hammered" finish. The forged head of the hammer is wedge-mounted onto the hardwood handle.  A top-quality professional jewelry tool.


WigJig Jewelry anvil jewelry making tool.
Bargain Anvil
 


Item 2911 is our lowest priced anvil. Made for precision work, this miniature anvil is drop-forged steel which is then case hardened. Use this tool when hammering wire designs to harden/flatten. A great companion tool to any of our hammers. Great for hardening wire designs for a professional finish. This anvil is made in Pakistan and may have minor surface blemishes (this will not interfere with the functionality of the anvil for hardening wire). Provides a solid and flat surface for hammering wire pieces. Top as well as sides can be used for hammering. Size: 4 1/8" long by 1 5/8" high by 1" wide.
