What Are Tweezers Used for in Jewelry Making?

IGS may receive customer referral fees from the companies listed in this page.

Why?

solder tweezers

Pointed tweezers are indispensable for picking up tiny pieces of solder from your work bench. Placing the solder on the jewelry is much easier too with these tools. Be careful with the tip. It is very sharp and fine and can be bent easily.

Amazon and Gesswein both sell a variety of styles and colors on their websites.

"I have gone through a lot of tweezers over the years, and I sort of expect to get rid of older ones from time to time. These however, are my favorite tweezers so far. All the points are well rounded and precise. I like the fact that they don't bend that easy if you over stress them.
The one complaint I have is that the plastic case they come in was only slotted for six which meant it was kind of inconvenient when your trying to work with one hand. Apart from that, great product......

"Great set of tweezers that I can already tell will be useful in many of my projects! They have a good weight and balance when holding, with little effort in closing, I can already tell my hands will not be as achy! Makes me laugh that people can be so nit picky about products that cost so little, but are every bit as good as the higher priced items. Now if I don't drop them (tweezer death) or misplace them (which is why I love the holder) these will be a part of my artist tools for a very long time! Thank you so much!"   read more
