    Yeah, anybody have any tips about coated wire? It’s so frustrating.

    Very nice – I love the shape! I’ve always loved long elegant rings!
    No tips about avoiding the scratches on plated wire – I just avoid using it and stick to solid copper & brass now. They still scratch but it can be rubbed out with steel wool.

    This is splendiforous, Frida! I love the shape and the turquoise! I know what you mean about coated wires, though…it’s sooooo hard not to get scratches. :D

    Frida, this is gorgeous! I took a Chain Maille class at my LBS ages ago. They suggested buying flat nose pliers to be used just for chain maille. More importantly, she also suggested coating the pliers with this product called: Tool Magic (heavy duty flexible rubber coating) This prevents scratching the metal coating. ;) Hope this helps! :D
