In fact, I could tell you all about wire wrapping tools I use in one sentence but where is fun in that? To start the topic I will tell you few things about the time when I discovered this technique. It was so long time ago to be true! I remember when I first bought some wires and I honestly tried to create something just with my own hands and copper. No tools. Imagine wire wrapping like that. Well, I knew after few minutes that I need something more than my sheer enthusiasm. It’s honestly not possible to create jewelry without pliers (yes this is the key word here!).
I tried to be clever and bought 3 in 1 super tool. You can see in the photo my first and ever pliers which I still use! But the essential part of them are round nose pliers. This kind of thing is what you really need when it comes to wire wrapping. And beside them, I guess, you need some precise wire cutters. Technically you can cut with scissors but I don’t recommend that (you can ruin them and even your jewelry in extreme cases). The one which I have in mine weren’t sufficient so wire cutter was the second tool I really got for myself. And that’s it!
That was the beginning but I need to confess that it didn’t much change. I bought some more tools, less or more advanced, but after all, my first pliers are always the most used. So if you want to play with wire wrapping technique, only wires and round nose pliers are really and truly necessary (and something to cut the wires, but there are honestly some counterparts which you can find in your home.
