Jewelry making supplies that are required for making jewelry are basically jewelry wire, beads and findings. The following paragraph will discuss these three jewelry making supplies categories. Jewelry consists of small decorative items worn for personal adornment such as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Jewelry may be attached to the body or clothes. For many centuries metal, often combined with gemstones has been the normal material for jewelry but other materials can be used such as shells. The basic form of jewelry vary between cultures but are often extremely long-lived. Jewelry may be made from a wide range of materials such as gemstones, amber, metal, beads and shells. The patterns of wearing jewelry between sexes and children and old people can vary greatly between cultures, but adult women have been the most consistent wearers of jewelry.
Humans have used jewelry as an artistic display, as a carrier or symbol for love to fix clothing or hair
Items are typically set into precious metals called bronze. Modern fine jewelry usually includes gold, white gold, platinum, silver, titanium, palladium. Common materials used include glass such as fused glass, wood, shells, bones, ivory, hemp and other natural animal substances, diamonds
Jewelry wire is in general brass, copper, silver-plated, gold-plated or gold-filled wire. This wire is sold in several sizes called gauges, with the larger gauge wire being smaller in diameter. For making jewelry the most common gauge is 16, 18, 20 and 22. 24 and 26 gauge are used but less frequently. For connecting wire components with the wrapped bead link, frequently 22-gauge wire will be used.
Beads are frequently used in jewelry. Beads are decorative items made from a variety of materials that is general have a hole used for holding the bead in position in position in your jewelry. Beads can be made of glass, plastics, wood, stone, metal, bone and semi-precious or precious materials.
Beads may be large or small: the smallest type of beads are known as seed beads and these beads are used for the woven style of beaded jewelry. Another use of seed beads is a technique where seed beads are sewn onto fabric backings to create broad collar neck pieces and bracelets.
Findings are jewelry making supplies and components like clasps, head pins, ear wires, jump rings, and either manufactured or handmade components
