Return to Jewelry Tools, Beads, Wire and Jewelry Making Supplies by WigJig Home
See our selection of jewelry making supplies, beads, wire and jewelry tools.
We try to provide interesting jewelry making projects using beads, jewelry wire and other jewelry supplies. We hope that these pictures will provide you enough information for you to complete these projects. Some of the skills and jewelry making techniques used have not been fully discussed here. For beginners, we suggest that you start with a visit to our Beginners Start Here pages. These pages discuss the skills necessary for making jewelry in the detail that beginners need. We also suggest that beginners to making jewelry might need to visit the WigJig University College of Jewelry Techniques for additional information about some of the skills and techniques shown.
Most, but not all of the jewelry supplies shown here can be purchased in our WigJig store. We try to have a complete selection of jewelry supplies in our store including chain, wire, glass beads, findings, watches, tools, etc.
The jewelry making projects shown in our web site do not use Sterling Silver. The reason for this is simple, it is harder to get good pictures of Sterling Silver wire components than with colored wire including gold-filled, copper, or brass wire. Any project shown in colored wire can be made in Sterling Silver wire.
