Straightening jewelry wire is a technique for removing the curls and bends in the wire, resulting in a straight length of wire. Both the manufacturing process as well as the packaging of jewelry wire tends to give the wire a natural curl. For this reason, straightening the wire is the first step in most wire jewelry projects. This technique is frequently performed by pulling the wire through the jaws of a nylon jaw pliers jewelry tool as shown at left.
