Dear 100 Hour Board,
So I checked and couldn't find anything to answer this question...so here goes!
I took a jewelry making class in high school and I loved it! So I wanted to try and do some on my own. However, I have no idea how to put together a good jewelry making kit. Anyone know of a list or something I could work off of? I mostly want to focus on bead and wire work to start with. My dream is to have my own jewelry shop in my home one day! :)
I asked my sister, who has a jewelry shop on etsy. For the basics, she recommends round pliers (for bending round shapes), flat pliers (for gripping), wire cutters, crimping beads, and a crimping tool, plus, obviously, lots of beads, wire, and findings (things like clasps or earring posts). Any of that you should be able to get at a craft store. She also recommends checking out the Auntie's Beads videos on Youtube for some good tutorials. Good luck!
