plate is essential for making Viking weave wire jewelry. It's
used to "draw" your initial weave down to a smaller
diameter. Draw plates are used with smooth jewelry wire or
craft wire. Several other draw plate designs are available,
including do-it-yourself versions. The White#12 Draw Plate is unique.
