JEWELRY MAKING TIPS: Duct Tape Your Pliers

Posted by learntobead on April 19, 2020


If you feel you are scratching up your pieces with your pliers, you can do one of two things.

You can replace your pliers with nylon tipped ones. This solves the scratching issues, but sometimes you don’t feel you have the same control over these, as you do with regular pliers. They tend to slip too easily when you are using them.

Or, you can take some duct tape, and tape over the jaws of your pliers. You can do this to your chain nose pliers, flat nose pliers, round nose pliers, and the like.

Since the duct tape is thin, you don’t lose that “feel”, as you manipulate the pliers with your hand.
