Wire decorations: what is needed?
In order to learn how to make jewelry from wire, you will not need complex tools. Pliers, round-nose pliers, an ordinary hammer and small clutches that can be screwed to both the table and the chair. Here, perhaps, that's all.
Some use specialized pliers with a smooth inner surface to work with the wire, they do not scratch the material at all. There is a special tool - pliers with removable nylon linings, with the help of them straighten the already twisted wire.
When choosing a material for work, buy an ordinary thick electric wire of the diameter and stiffness you need. They are sold at any electrical goods store. If the wire is very stiff and it bends poorly, you need to heat it over the hob, only work should be done with gloves. The most popular diameters are 0.2 mm, 0.6 mm and 1 mm.
It is better to use the maximum wire diameter in order to fill the holes in the beads that you take for decoration as much as possible. The larger the diameter of the selected wire, the more resistant it is to abrasion. If the wire can move well inside the hole of the beads, it will rub against their edges and will surely tear.
Be sure to take care of good lighting before starting work - because without bright lights it is difficult to imagine a workplace. Halogen lamps will be a good help for you.
