Cutting wire or metal is all about the right tool for the job, most wire used for jewelry making is soft, (relatively!) made of silver, copper, gold filled, brass or bronze. Cutting sheet metal is a whole different animal, use a jewelers saw or a shear. For cutting large pieces of sheet metal, a bench shear is more appropriate.
Cutters are a huge category of tools, there are specialty cutters for sprues, heavy duty cutters for heavy wire, ultra flush cutters for extremely flush cuts. Check out our 'Ask an Expert' section for more tips on choosing a cutter. Practice safe cutting, wear safety glasses or control the flying away of small pieces of wire by covering the cut with your hand.
