I'm So Excited!

I am very excited! I have sold several items on Ebay and have bids on some of my auctions. There is an excitement when you get a customer's order ready and knowing that you are sending off something great. I put some items on Ebay just to see if they would sell, and I really thought that I wouldn't sell very much. But actually the opposite is the case. People really seem to like my items that I make and that is an awesome feeling! I am so happy! :D

Jewelry Making Essentials

Ok so you want to get into making jewelry but you might be asking yourself "what do I need?". That is very understandable because there are lots and LOTS of jewelry making stuff out there and just thinking about it all can get your head spinning with confusion. So I've composed a list of the stuff that you really need to get your jewelry making off and running and letting your creative juices start to flow.
Jewelry Making Essentials:
1) So, this one is pretty obvious but you will need an assortment of beads (glass beads are preferable)

2) A container to organize your beads in. (you don't want to have your beads unorganized which can make for not a good experience)
3) Wire and lots of it. (you can use stretchy cord but they have a tendency to explode)
4) Tools (bead crimper, wire cutters, & needle nose pliers)
5) Findings (clasps and jump rings)
6) Crimp beads

7) Bead Palette
So that is pretty much it, I will post pictures at the bottom and where I bought them. You might be thinking that its expensive to make jewelry and I'll be honest, at the beginning it sort of is. But I have some tips so you can save money and not break the bank so much.
Tip #1: Hobby Lobby almost always has beads and jewelry 50% off. Never buy things full price
Tip #2: Hobby Lobby also has coupons for 40% off a regular priced item. http://hobby
Tip #3: Shop at Walmart. They have an aisle devoted to crafting and they sell glass beads and findings.
