Tools of the Trade

Like any craft, jewelry making requires a set of specific tools. Essential ones include jewelry pliers (for bending wires and opening/closing jump rings), wire cutters (for making clean cuts), and beading needles (for threading those pesky small beads). It's worth investing in high-quality tools to make your crafting experience more enjoyable and efficient.

Wires, Threads, and Cords, Oh My!

The skeleton of your jewelry piece, be it wire, thread, or cord, plays a major role in its overall aesthetic and durability. Materials range from flexible nylon and organic silk to robust metal wires. Choose what suits your design and comfort best.
