Learn to use the 1-Step Looping Pliers to make consistent loops quickly and easily.
Creating eyepins can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Most jewelers will tell you that although it sounds simple, making consistent and well-shaped loops can be frustrating. Depending on your jewelry piece, you may have to do this simple task several times, and traditionally, you’ve had to use multiple tools to get the job done.
The 1-Step Looping Pliers are designed to trim and loop head pins, eyepins and form wire in one simple and consistent motion.
Problem solving is an important part of making fine jewelry. Sometimes, after soldering your bezel, the stone just does not fit back in the way it did before. Trying to force your stone back in can cause damage. Adding stones to your creations is a great way to bring color and interest to the piece.
In this tool demo, learn a few quick tricks to set your stones easily, and get the perfect fit every time.
In this tools demo, we’ll share some simple tips and tricks to finding the balance point on pendants, cleaning steel shot, and keeping your pliers organized.
Using these simple techniques can save time and money, and help you make beautiful jewelry.

Have you tried Magic Carbon? If you want a more simple firing process, this carbon is for you!
Not all carbons are the same. Some carbons will not work at all for firing metal clay. Others will give you a handful of good firings before they are spent. Some will work for one kind or brand of clay and not for another. Magic Carbon is pre-tested for all brands of bronze, copper and silver clays and fires any thickness in a 2 hour schedule in most kilns (some kilns will require additional hold time). Magic Carbon also has the advantage of firing at a lower temperature. The faster firing and the lower temperature puts less demand on the heating elements, giving your elements a longer life than other carbons.
Magic Carbon produces an antique patina on bronze and copper clays, which eliminates the need for additional patination. If color is desired, you can remove the kiln patina with a steel brush or 3M Bristle Discs and apply a heat patina by heating the piece gently with a torch.
Magic Carbon will fire all silver clay. This will allow you to fire heat-sensitive stones with no damage or color change. Any stone that is listed on our Gemstones in Metal Clay firing chart as fireable can be safely fired in Magic Carbon. If a gem is listed as “no fire”, such as Turquoise or Opal, it cannot be fired in any carbon or kiln. The nature of these types of stones do not allow them to be heated. Only stones that are listed as Low Fire or High Fire will survive kiln heating. Magic Carbon protects the gem from oxygen, preserving it’s color. No pre-burnout is needed to fire silver clay. This is a unique feature of Magic Carbon and it does not apply to any other carbon.
Make your firing process simple with help from Magic Carbon, available in both 1lb and 5 lb sizes.
