Wire Cutters
A good pair of wire cutters is essential for making all of the jewelry.
There are several different styles, but whichever ones you use, make sure they cut absolutely flush, since the shape of the cut‘s end, or burr, will need to be filed. The smaller the burr, the less filing will be needed. Since you will often need to cut wire in very small spaces, bigger is
definitely not better. Pointed tips give you the most control.
