Know your jewelry making components

It was my friend who introduced me to jewelry making. It was way back in 2008 . My dear friend did take me to a bead shop where she demonstrated how I can make my own earrings.

At that time I had no idea what components to look for or what to use.
If you are a beginner then I hope you find this post to be helpful.

The following are the basic items required to make earrings
1. Ear hooks

2. Beads

4. Head pins and eye pins

All these items and many more can be found online as well as in stores. This shop All Earrings and Supplies in zibbet.com is one of the few stores which sells almost everything that you need to make your own jewelry.

Handmade beads!

Remember my earlier post regarding clay beads?
