The Coiling Gizmo makes coiling wire simply a breeze. By Sian Hamilton

I have always been slight obsessed with coils of wire and making my own jumprings. So when I got a Coiling Gizmo® sent into the office from The Crystal Phoenix, I was quite excited! It is hard work and difficult to get a long run of tightly coiled wire when using a pair of pliers or by just wrapping around a mandrel. The Coiling Gizmo® changes all that and makes it super quick and simple to make hundreds of jumprings or a long coil of wire to make coiled beads.

The Coiling Gizmo® was invented by LeRoy Goertz after he was shown an ancient technique of coiling wire by hand in 1996. He liked the technique but it took so long to make a single bead that LeRoy set about creating a tool to speed up the process and the Coiling Gizmo® was born.
