  1. While I love the gizmo nature of this, as a wire-working jeweler I’d say it;s faster and easier to just use round nose pliers. It may take a little longer to get practiced at it but ultimately you don’t need special pliers, jigs, etc. Just round and chain nose pliers and some flush nippers. Oh and your hands.
