Brand:  The Beadsmith


You are purchasing 1 pair of looping pliers.

 

This is a wonderful invention from the beadsmith, loops and cuts wire .5mm - 1mm diameter.

Making loops isn't hard, what is hard is getting them consistently the same size, otherwise you get one earring longer/shorter than the other.

 I have had a 15 minute play  with these pliers and am quite impressed with them, I have made a pair of earrings so that you can see it is possible to get the loop right up to the bead which it doesn't show you in the beadsmiths video: and the space between the top of the loop and the top of the bead is the same, (I should have chosen a machine cut bead as the beads are irregular in size).

What I hav'nt been able to do is get the loop completely round, there is a slight flat area where the loop closes, maybe thats because I have only spent 15 minutes and used 5 headpins, as with any tool practice makes perfect.

As you can see in the 3rd photo one end is the size loop made with the regular looper the other end is the loop made with the 1 step big looper.

Size of loop made with the regular looper using .77mm diameter wire:-  3.05mm external diameter 1.4mm internal diameter. Grey handles

If its earrings you want to use it on, go for the regular looper.

Size of loop made with the 2.25mm looper using .77mm diameter wire:  4.03mm external diameter  2.5mm internal diameter. Yellow handles (not pictured)

Size of loop made with the big looper using .77mm diameter wire:  4.5mm external diameter 3.1mm internal diameter. Green handles.
