Are you wondering which jewelry pliers you need? There are three basic types of pliers that you need: the side cutter, flat nose pliers and round nose pliers. With the side cutter you cut wire to the right length. Because the wire is often fine, a standard side cutter is sufficient. The flat nose pliers are useful jewelry pliers because you can use them to hold jewelry pieces and to pinch two parts together. Choose flat nose pliers with a smooth jaw if you’re working with sterling silver. With the round nose pliers you bend silver and other wires in all kinds of shapes. At Vaessen Creative you’ll find various sets with these three basic types of pliers.

As well as these basic pliers, there is also the crimp tool that you can use to finish off crimp beads neatly. With these jewelry pliers you can put pressure on the crimp beads to flatten them.

Take a look at our extensive range of leather and faux leather cords in innumerable shapes and colors. Waxed cord is also a perfect material for making bracelets, as it’s colorfast and durable. Satin wire, which is also sturdy and colorfast, gives a gleam to your jewelry and is ideal for braiding or knotting. Synthetic cord in 100% nylon is good for weaving, knotting or threading. Ideal for necklaces, bracelets, ankle bracelets and hairbands. Of course, to go with all these wires and cords, you also need beads in various materials, colors, sizes and shapes.

Bead board

Depending on the type of jewelry you’re making, a bead board is very useful to have at home. On the bead board you put each bead in a separate section. It’s ideal if you don’t yet know exactly how or where you want to place the beads in a bracelet or necklace. You can easily order a handy bead board online from Vaessen Creative.
