Beadalon added two new new tool kits to take some of the guesswork out of getting started – or moving forward- with your beading skill arsenal. First, the Wire Wrapping Kit, (MSRP $35.99) put together by wire wrapper extraordinaire Wyatt White, includes all of the tools you need to get started with Wire Wrapping including: Chain Nose Pliers, Bent Chain Nose Pliers, Round Nose Pliers and a Nipper Tool. We also included a special bonus booklet – Beginning Wire Wrapping by Wyatt White, with step by step photo instructions to make simple loops, wrapped loops, head pins, wrapped briolettes and fancy bead caps.
The Ear Wire Kit (MSRP $19.99) has all of the supplies that you need to make perfect, matching ear wires – every time! The Swoop Earwire Findings Form is one of my favorites, the 22 Gauge German Style Wire is the right gauge and temper of Wire, and the Wire Rounder makes quick work of smoothing out the rough edges. The Pocket Nipper Tool is just the right size to snip the ends of the ear wires. You’ll be in earring production heaven in no time!
