Artistic Wire Spiral Maker
Create perfect spirals that you can add to your jewelry, crafts, and more. Simply just insert wire into the device, center it, and then twist the handle until the desired size of coil is achieved. For best results, use artistic wire, German Style Wire, and soft wire that is 20 gage or smaller.
Artistic Wire Crinkler
Using wire that is 20 gauge or finer, you will insert the wire in and guide it to the center of the gears. Then, turn the gear until the wire is moving and you can decide how much "crinkle" you want to add to your piece! This tool also provides different styles of gears, for more rounded or pointed crinkle.
