I am frequently asked to recommend pliers for jewelry artisans who have smaller hands and work with wire a LOT. THESE are THE ONES!
These are a perfect set to step up to when you are ready to address hand fatigue. My daughter and several of my students personally prefer the shorter handles and the foam grips feel terrific! The pair that you see in the last picture is my daughters which she has used day in and day out for over a year!
Check out my YouTube Video to see exactly how I recommend prepping them and how to properly use them to open and close a jump ring:

Cushion grips (ESD SAFE) with stainless steel leaf springs.
Long jaws allow for a broader range of loop diameters.
