I am new to this site and I would like to learn how to make simple and easy jewellery as presents.  I have never done anything like this before.  I am from South Australia, Australia.

I have done a couple of pairs of earrings which are on my blog if anyone wants to check them out.

For someone who claims to be a "newbie" you work has a style all its own.. and is very professional.. never use the term "newbie" doesn't suit you our your style.

Sorry but thanks.  I am new to making earrings though but I have been doing cardmaking and digital scrapbooking for about 12 months now and I am still learning to do these

Practice, practice, practice. Also books and tutorials online. Go to www.firemountaingem s.com and watch their free tutorials. They are great. If you look for the tutorial titled "Making a Wrapped Loop and Double Wrapped Loop" it will show you a different technique for your loops. Once I learned how to do this and got good at it I never went back to the other way. You will need a 24 or 26 guage headpin though so it is easy to bend and wrap. I love making earrings. It is a very rewarding feeling to wear your own handmade jewelry and get compliments on it or give it as gifts. My other suggestion is a great pair of jewelry wire cutters. I could not live without mine. If you have a local bead shop near you I would ask them what they use. Good luck and have fun. That's the most important thing.
