Choosing a new set of pliers can be a daunting task. There are so many options. Here at Xuron Corp. we’ve recently introduced even more variations to accommodate more applications. So, what are all these pliers for?! Read on to learn the specific features and benefits of our line of precision pliers for jewelry making.
Micro-Shear® Flush Cutters, how do you choose the right one?
In the last few years we’ve seen more and more brick-and-mortar stores closing. This has left a significant hole in the jewelry community. Jewelers have fewer resources and less access to knowledgeable people. We’ve been fielding more and more phone calls asking for help choosing the right tool for the job.
A few years ago we had the pleasure of exhibiting next to Mary Soucy at the Bead & Button Show. We chatted with Mary and her mom and discovered not only are they two of the nicest ladies you’d ever meet but Mary is an avid Xuron user! Mary Soucy is an incredibly talented designer and instructor. She is enthusiastic and exudes passion for her craft. She has an impressive creativity that blurs the lines of chainmailling and beading; resulting in a final product that has an elegant bead-woven aesthetic.
I recently had the opportunity to ask Mary Soucy a few questions about creating, chainmaille, tools and more…
Every chainmaille artist owns at least two different pliers and each has his/her own preference for brand and style. Having had the opportunity to meet with many different artists and designers, we’ve isolated three essential Xuron® brand pliers for chainmaille work.

There are a lot of things I like about a trade show but one of the most enjoyable is having the opportunity to meet new people and catch up with old friends. Yes, we’re all there to do business but the importance of the social component cannot be underestimated.
