This week’s tool: Wubbers Pliers

Demonstration by Patti Bullard, creator of Wubbers Pliers

This week’s featured tool is the Wubbers and Baby Wubbers line of pliers, Wire-Sculpture’s newest line of jewelry tools! These high-quality pliers have extremely comfortable grips and come in several perfectly-sized shapes and styles. The Classic Wubbers are perfect if you’re used to Swanstroms and have normal or large hands. The Baby Wubbers are great for small-handed jewelry designers, beaders, and chain maille artists.

Patti Bullard, a jewelry maker and entrepreneur, created the Wubber plier line in collaboration with EURO TOOL. As she says, these jewelry making pliers are "made for making jewelry" – not tools that are cross-purpose, such as designed for aeronautics or household repairs. In the video above, Patti shows us how to create an ear wire with her Wubbers small bail-making pliers, large bail-making pliers, and, flat nose pliers. Enjoy!

PLUS: Order any Wubbers tools on Wire-Sculpture before midnight Friday, January 27, 2012, and you’ll get 3 free stepped-out tutorials complete with clear pictures and tips!

    A word of caution about the Wubbers wire looping pliers, PLR-1350. The round nose jaw bends very easily.
