The humble round nose pliers is one of the most essential tools to possess. Yet many beginners only use it for making loops.  It can do more than that!  Think multiple loops!  This tutorial by wire artist, Lythong Art, shows the possibilities.

You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!

  1. Being able to 'see' something out of a piece of wire and a tool is talent.

    I think his little starbursts etc. would make lovely earrings. They would not only be light to wear but reflective with all the turns of the wire.
