With some pieces a little more finishing will be required. After removing the wire from your nylon jaw pliers you may need to "hand finish" your piece. This means that you view the piece and manipulate it by hand so that it is positioned properly. Rarely you may even need to use your pliers to help you with hand finishing. The pliers can help you to grip a loop of wire and manipulate it, where your fingers alone would not be able to get a firm enough grip. The proper way to perform hand finishing with your pliers is to insert your round nose into the loop as far as they will go, then grip lightly with the pliers, pushing or pulling the loop into position. Step Jaw Pliers may also be used and will generally result in fewer marks on your wire component. You are done with the hand finishing when the piece appears the way you want it to.
The wire component made for our Deluxe Duplex Bracelet (shown here) is a good example of a wire component that will require hand finishing.
In the next page, we will discuss what to do when you are making a new design instead of following our instructions for an existing design.
