Jewelry Making Tools

Xuron® Jewelry Making Tools

Welcome to Xuron Corporation’s dedicated space for jewelry makers – including bead stringing, bead weaving, metalsmithing, chainmaille, and wire art.

Xuron® brand Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters are unique amongst wire cutters because they cut by ‘shearing’ as opposed to compression. The result is a super flush cut.

Tip: Click on the photo (to the left) to see our new brochure of jewelry making tools. 

Here's how Xuron® Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters work.

We also manufacture a variety of precision pliers and scissors especially designed for quality results, comfort and durability.

Our resident jeweler and expert on all things jewelry making, Ashley Bunting, is available to assist with Xuron® tool and/or technique related questions.  Ashley has also created a series of product videos which can be viewed on YouTube.

Xuron® Pliers for Chainmaille:

Xuron® Model 485FN Flat Nose Pliers and Model 487 Chisel Nose Pliers grip and hold jump rings

Our new model 487 Chisel Nose Pliers are designed with a 45° angled tip allowing for more suface area of the pliers on the jump ring.  Also, this tip shape eliminates interference of the pliers tips with the open working space of the jump ring.Pliers tips are ground at a 45° angle to allow more surface area of the pliers on the jump rings.
