I’ve discovered that sometimes brilliant colours created by enamelling even the simplest pieces make jewellery makings a fascinating craft. Even with metal, I’m slowly learning how to turn wire, brass, copper and silver into intricate jewelery with nothing more complicated than a pair of pliers. I’ve also discovered that with a few modern lightweight little jewelry making tools, easily available with short term loans from companies likehttps://www.ferratum.co.uk/affiliate_program, it is possible to solder, weld, cut, cast and etch at home and make some unique jewelery pieces.

I’ve discovered that the first steps in jewelery making are often the most exciting, With just a few threading and knotting techniques and just a little bit of knowledge of the right threads and fastenings, I’ve actually created a dazzling treasure chest of necklaces and bracelets. Another bonus with learning to make jewelery, is that you can also fix up any broken pieces, but thats just by the way. I’ve literally become carried away with making my pet love…necklaces.

Preparing for Contests

I’m planning on entering jewelery making contests, and  just love seeing the unique and very personal pieces emerging. Jewelery making can be surprisingly inexpensive too, and craft shops, believe me, are literal Aladdin’s Caves for jewelery makers like me. I’m talking about glass beads, wooden balls, rough cut stones, bamboo and ceramics cut in myriads of shapes. You’ll find wire, string, leather, fishing nylon.. simply put, you find exactly what you want. Once you’ve learned how to drill holes, mould clay and work metal… you’ll be carried away with enthusiasm like me as you strive towards well-finished, amazing looking  jewelry.
