How to Get Started in Jewelry Making

Step 1:  Purchase the list of jewelry tools and jewelry supplies from page 12.

Step 2:  Read and review pages 1-11 of this series.

Step 3:  Don't get discouraged.  Plan on throwing your first several jewelry making attempts away.  This is like riding a bike.  It is easy once you have learned what to do, but it does require practice.  Buy some cheap copper wire to practice and use this practice wire for the first three components that you make.

Step 4:  Re-read step three.

Step 5:  The first three steps in every jewelry making project are to cut a length of jewelry wire, straighten the wire and make a loop in the end of the wire.  Become comfortable in these three steps.  You will do them a lot.
