2)Purchase tools and supplies. The basic tools required to make jewelry are round rose pliers, chain nose pliers, crimp pliers, a wire cutter and bead board. Jewelry making supplies include stringing wire, clasps, crimps (used to hold the wire in place) and ear wires for earrings.
3)Stock up on beads. There are many different types of beads including glass, semi-precious stone, crystal, silver, gold, metal and ceramic. Also use charms and various size chains to make jewelry. Purchase beads at a local bead store or on the Internet. Look in your jewelry box--take apart any items you no longer wear and use the components.
4)Jump in and start making jewelry. Try different design combinations--arrange the beads on the bead board before stringing.
