  • Hi everyone!

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forums, into jewelery making BIG time having started about two years ago. I've made loads but have a problem which I'm hoping someone may be able to help me with.

    I just can't seem to master the crimping technique. I've tried three pairs of pliers, several different brands of crimping tube and wire yet still they come adrift with alarming regularity.
    Any ideas?

    I am considering buying the magic crimping tool but read a few reviews about that being unreliable as well. There must be a way around this - advice much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hope to get to know you all soon.

    Lisa

    Hi Lisa and to the forum.

    I'm not a jewellery maker so can't help with your question but if you ask again in the jewellery section http://www.craftsforum.co.uk/forumdi...p?19-Jewellery you might get some answers as not all the jewellery folks will see it here in the intro section.
