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.

While working on laundry today I just played with some left over Square Wire Anodized Aluminum and some EPDM rings.  All 16 SWG 1/4" from theringlord . 

Nothing super fancy, but just to keep the pliers in the hands and the mind from counting down the days left living in our van.

In other news, WE ONLY HAVE 3 WEEKS!!!! We finally found an apartment we can afford that's close enough to allow one of us to walk to work.  Which means I'll be planning on getting things redone to start streaming my mailling again as well as more space to finally get the website fully updated. 🎉🎉🎉

On my pliers this morning is a one of a kind piece using different shades of green and champagne for a variegated look and I'm loving it. All will be revealed later 💚

Finished Bill’s jumper but yet to get a photo, maybe after all the sport is finished 😂. In the meantime I picked up my #xuronpliers to make some earrings in jewellers brass with some labradorite dangles. #makeitxuron #chainmaille #chainmaillejewelry #labradoritejewelry #crochet #chainmaillejewellery #gemstonejewellery

So, I'm not sure if this is valid for a new weave, but it's a brass version of the Elrond's Weave I posted yesterday and I've got the sizes sorted to make this. It's very flexible and I think elegant... Need to get enough rings to finish the bracelet!

Made with my long suffering xuroncorp pliers...
