Check out artbeads.com for supplies. You need to buy head pins and you'll need needle nosed pliers to make the loops and wraps.

That site also has some great tutorials. Here's one: http://www.artbeads.com/spswea.html

yes the pins with a flat end are headpins, for chain, I  get really cheap necklaces at Ben Franklin (local craftstore) for around a dollar and use the one necklace for several pairs of earings, saving the clasp for something else Wink

Round-nose pliers are crucial to make good loops in your headpins..

Yeah, round nose plyers are best for making loops in headpins.  I get chain for my earrings off old necklaces I buy at yardsales and flea markets.  Sometimes you can get really good deals.

Round nose are kinda like needle nose plyers, but they don't have any flat edges.  Where the neelet nose pleyers come together, they are flat, but round nose plyers are rounded all the way around so you can make nice uniform loops with them.
