Knowledge is Power!
Beading and jewelry making has become an extremely popular hobby or home business for many inspired artisans looking to make beautiful jewelry for all occasions. However, for beginners, it is important to understand beading tools and materials firstly.
Beads-Beads, of course, are the primary component of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Beads can be made of wood, acrylic, metal, glass, semi-precious stones, or pearls. Beads are made in all shapes, sizes, and colors.
Acrylic beads add a mod touch. Wood beads are exotic and light weight. Shell beads add shine and color. Tibetan style jewelry provides you with ancient rhymes and exotic ambience. Glass beads come in multiple colors and finishes and shapes. Choosing just the right ones to match an outfit or as the perfect hand-made gift is magically creative.
Jewelry Findings- Findings link beads together to form the jewelry piece. Jewelry supplies for jewelry making involve beads, finding, and jewelry making tools. Findings are an essential part of all jewelry. Well chosen findings can make all the difference to an item of jewelry. Most items of wire and beaded jewelry will be finished off in some way by the use of one or more types of jewelry findings.
Head pin—Pin with a head the will keep a bead from sliding off. Which are used to hold pendant beads that hang from the chain or earring findings.
Eye pin—The essential piece for inserting beads between lengths of chain. One end is a pre-made eye. The other end is open to slide on a bead, cut to length and form a ring to connect to chain or another eye pin.
Clasp—Clasps close the necklace around the wearer’s neck. The common and secure kind is the lobster, but there are options, such as the bar and ring toggle clasp.
Earring findings—hold the bead or dangle to the wearer’s ear lobes. These come in pierced styles or clasp styles.
