Jewelry Making Tools by Xuron Corp.

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

Xuron’s jewelry making tools include a range of precision cutters, pliers and scissors designed to provide quality results, durability and comfort.

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.

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

We have Jewelry Making Tool Kits!

Each of the kits featured below contain three Xuron® tools that are essential for bead stringing, chainmaille jewelry making and metalsmithing. Tools come in a canvas pouch for storage and portability.

What puts you into a state of Zen? Please tell us in the comments. 

For Noelle Van der Tuin, it's working on a chainmaille project with two Xuron® pliers and a bunch of rings. The end result is lovely!

Had a good restart to streaming tonight.  Got to chat with some old friends which was nice.  Also worked on converting my Voodoo watchband from straight on to biased.

Streaming link can be found in bio.

Divination-on-the-go pendulum bracelet time lapse. If only I could make these in 30 seconds! 

I had an order this morning so I figured I'd capture the moment... at least as much as I could. My screen went black while filming so I ended up doing some things a little off camera but oh well! 

I love making these bracelets! I especially love selecting just the right Herkimer diamond, and once finished, testing the pendulum itself! 

There's a lot of care and focus and love that goes into making jewelry and I am thankful for those who wear my pieces!

This is such a gorgeous weave, with a beautiful fluid look as it moves. It's made with two Xuron Short Nose Pliers. Give a thumbs up emoji in the comments if you like this as much as we do!

Reposted from @unchaineddesign Working on a dragonscale bracelet in a gorgeous peacock colour and stainless steel... It's almost like frost dragonskin or some sort of frozen snake, and I absolutely adore it... 

Made with my trusty #makeitxuron pliers (they're well used - everything in my last three years has used them!)

This takes ages to weave but is beautiful and slinky and sexy... Think this will head onto my Etsy soon - it's like a metal fabric as it wraps around your wrist.

Still working on the last of the write up on the Jellyfish Tutorial.  But so far these are all the Jellyfish I've made so far in working everything  out.

I hope to have it fully finished up this coming week.

This has been about 40 hours in the making between everything so far, but totally worth it!
