With these jewelry making supplies, you are ready to embark on making your very first piece of handcrafted jewelry. Just buy the following jewelry making tools first and then add to these jewelry supplies as you go along.
Obviously, wire cutters are for cutting wire. It is important to purchase a good quality pair of wire cutters as you will be using this jewelry supply a lot for your jewelry making. Also invest in one that is small and easy to hold yet strong since you will need to grip it in one hand so often to cut your wire while holding the jewelry piece in the other hand.
Round-nosed Pliers are used mainly for creating curls and loops on your wires. The tips of the pliers are smooth cone-shaped. Using them to make your own eye pins and jump rings is a breeze. There are longer round-nosed pliers with smaller tips which enable you to create very small eye pin's loops. These longer round-nosed pliers are necessary for making finer beads jewelry.
Note: The above 3 tools are the most important jewelry making supplies. I use these three jewelry making tools for all my projects.
Crimp Beads are tiny metal beads used at both ends of necklaces or bracelets to tighten wires. Contemporary beads designs also incorporate these into the design to keep the beads in place on the wire. Use the flat-nosed pliers to crimp these beads. Remember to crimp on both ends in order to sandwich the wire between.
Beads and gemstones are necessary items to add to your jewelry making supplies. You will find all sizes and shapes of beads in the stores today. The ordinary beads are sold packaged in small plastic bags. But gemstones are normally sold strung on strings and knotted at the ends. Do not unstrung the stones, but rather leave them on the strings. When you need to use these, you can transfer them directly onto your beading wire.
Swarovski Crystal was a company founded by Daniel Sworovski with his brother-in-law, Franz Weis and with Armand Kosmann in 1895.
You will want to add some charms to your jewelry making supplies. There are lots of beautiful charms designs for your jewelry making. These beautiful designs are usually made of base-metal, and precious metals like gold and silver. So do include charms in your jewelry making supplies and use them for making your own lovely charm bracelets.
