Want to get started making unique wire jewelry, but not sure which Wubbers to choose?
We know that many of you already have round, chain , and a pair of flat nose pliers, but are now ready to add some more distinctive types/shapes of pliers to your collection.
The Wubbers Deluxe "Get Started" Set includes 6 carefully selected pairs of pliers that can be used to make an endless number of creative jewelry designs.
You might notice that this set includes the same 4 Wubbers as the Basic "Get Started" Set, only we have added 2 more. We have included our patented best-seller, the Wubbers Regular Looping Pliers because every jewelry maker needs to wrap loops quickly, easily, and stress free.
We also added the Wubbers Classic Medium Flat Nose Pliers, which is a unique and perfect width for so many jobs. A number of the tutorials listed below make great use of these pliers as a fast and easy way to measure, twist, bend, and form wire without marring. The Wubbers Classic Medium Flat Nose Pliers are one of Patti Bullard's favorites--she uses them virtually every time she sits down to make jewelry.
Question: I am a metalsmith, but want to get into more wire work. Everything I see by wire workers is perfect corners and curves, all beautifully executed. What basic tools would I need as a beginning wire worker, without overlapping my basic 3 sets of pliers I already have? ~Lynn
I get asked this question very often by beginner to advanced jewelry makers. There are so many Wubbers to choose from! Based on my teaching and jewelry making experiences, and assuming that many of you already own the basic pliers (i.e., round, chain, and flat nose pliers), these are the first 6 choices to buy.
There are SO many designs that can be made with these 6 pliers! We've provided a number of tutorials to get you started with them, but don't forget to simply get a spool of copper wire and start bending. There's nothing like simple experimentation to feed your creative spirit (yes, YOU are creative!) and to learn about your new tools.
Here's wishing you many hours of jewelry making bliss!

This was my first Wubbers set purchase and I couldn't be happier. Like every other Wubber I've tried, these tools are well made and very comfortable during use.
