421  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Beginner Must Haves! on: June 13, 2005 05:08:07 PM
Check out BeadStyle Magazine!  There are tons of beginner projects, as well as advice on simple techniques such as closing off your jewelry, clasps, materials, etc. 

When I started out, I worked with the following materials:  hemp, tigertail wire, toggle clasps, crimp tubes, a do-all jewelry making tool that I got from Wal-Mart (pliers, wire cutters, etc) and, of course, beads of all kinds.

Good luck!

I love both necklaces - I can just picture wearing either of them with a white t-shirt and a nice summery flowy skirt...they would totally make any outfit!

I totally agree - BeadStyle was unintimidating when I first started out making jewelry, but it still provides me with amazing ideas for adapting patterns and colour combinations now, when I've been beading for a few years.  Another one of my favorite jewelry making magazines is Creative Jewelry put out by Paper Crafts magazine.  Both magazines provide simple advice for product selection and beginner techniques, but they are also great for inspiration.

Something like this would go for $30 - $40 Canadian.  I'd totally buy it for that!  Gorgeous...but it would definitely be better if you could guarantee the clasp was sterling, too.
