How To Use The Coiling Tools

February 21st, 2009 in Tutorial - Basic Techniques | 7 Comments


Prior to the release of Tear Drop with Love Wired Necklace Tutorial, I would like to show you how to use the coiling tools.

Oh ya, the coiling tools is not available for sale yet. New stocks will be arriving in store somewhere during mid of March.


Step 1: Insert the L shape cranking rod into the holes of the U shape bracket.


Step 2: Wrap the end wire around the eye of the cranking rod.


Step 3: Use your thumb to gently press the wire against the bracket as shown in the picture above.


Step 4: You may start to crank in clockwise direction.


Step 5: Continue cranking…

Look! I cranked it so fast that the camera can’t even capture a sharp image. LOL :P


Step 6: Continue cranking until desired length.

I managed to crank a coiled wire length of 5cm after 5 seconds. Wanna challenge my speed, huh?


Step 7: Unwrap the end wire from the eye, then pull the cranking tools out of the bracket.


Step 8: Cut off the unwanted wire from the coil using flush cutter.


Tadaa… this is what you will get – a coiled wire.


You can shape it as you like, to create unlimited design potential in jewelry making.


Or coil the coiled wire onto another wire, like a snake right? :P

Below are samples that I made in earlier time:
