Got a bucket list of useful tools to get?  Sure you do!  I have one too.  The nifty wire banding pliers is now on it.  This set of pliers is designed to double over a half round wire in just the right dimension to fit a group of square wires.

Wire Banding Pliers
Anyone making wire bezels will recognize the half round wire bands placed at strategic places around the cabochon is sometimes really tricky to get started right. The bottom of the U shaped bend has to fit snugly against the square wire bundles.  I use the very tip of my chain nose pliers to make that first bend.  It's not really a square bend because my chain nose plier tips aren't square. So sometimes the first wrap is not as snug as I like.

So I was intrigued to see Wyatt White's video tutorial of how to wire wrap a cabochon using fancy square wire.  He shows how he uses a wire banding pliers to make that square bend properly and fit whatever gauge the square wire bundle is. This tool just makes banding so much easier and faster.

I have no association with Beadaholique except as an occasional customer. I do however appreciate any tool which removes wire working frustration!
