What are the craft tools you cannot live without?

   I have quite a few jewelry tools, but there are some that I always have handy for any wire wrapping project. I have a small bag where I carry the “essentials”, and those are my flush cutters, round nose pliers, flat nose pliers and a metal file. Working with wire, I find that these are the ones that I am constantly using, so I always have them handy. If I have to go somewhere and want to take a wire jewelry project with me, all I have to do is grab my bag and I know I have the tools I need for any wire project. I almost forgot to mention that I also have a 6 inch ruler in my bag for measuring. It’s really handy: It’s a very flat ruler, not too big and can fit anywhere. I sometimes used it as a bookmark; talk about multi use lol…anyway, I am disgressing…. and finally, the most important tools are my hands. So there you have it. What are the jewelry tools you cannot live without? Please share

  1. As i am a felter and dyer not a metalsmith I don't know if i can add much here..but I did make some felted jewelry needing wires and bending a bit a number of years ago I have kept the plierst and another tool though and find other uses for them! And I just looked at some more of your posts and understand that metalsmith jewelry is very much "one of a kind"

  2. Thank you for stopping By Ginny. I focused on jewelry tools because these are the ones I used, but you are welcomed to list any favorite tools you used for your craft. I am very interested in knowing about all kind of tools. Thank you for looking around my blog :-), and yes indeed metalsmith jewelry is very much "one of a kind"
