Happy Friday! I have been making earrings for about 2 months now and I’m excited to say that I made my first sales today! But that isn’t why I’m posting this. I bought my round nose pliers from Hobby Lobby and I’m already having issues. First of all, loops kick my butt. I really spend a lot of time on them. And now my round nose pliers are wonky. When I start to make a loop, the pliers don’t stay together. Instead, one side shifts so they’re off-center. That throws my loop off and I really have to manipulate it. I know I need to get a better pair, but I would like some recommendations on brands.
Also, I saw that there are pliers available that automatically make loops. I am considering buying a pair, but there seem to be multiple sizes, so it’s very confusing. All assistance is appreciated! Thanks :)
