Being creative is one of the best ways to unwind, so if you're considering taking up jewellery making as a hobby, or already have a passion for it, you'll need some equipment to get started. Jewellery wire can be the foundation to any necklace or bracelet, making it a must-have when crafting jewellery.
This type of wire can come in many different thicknesses as well as materials which can include sterling silver or coloured brass, both of which are great for hanging beads.Something unique
Whether you're making jewellery just for yourself, as a gift for a mate or to sell online, jewellery supplies don't have to be exy. Beading wire is available in a range of lengths, gauges and colours to suit the requirements of your project. If you're looking for soft jewellery wire for wirework or wrapping, you can pick up sterling silver, aluminium and brass wire. You'll also find medium and hard wire more suitable for durable pieces like a beaded tiara, as well as home DIY projects.
Different thicknesses and metals might dictate what beads you can include on your handmade necklace or bracelet. Gold or gold coloured wire might be more exy than others, but the finished product will look all the better for it.
You can opt to decorate the home with beads by running a length of wire across windows and bed headboards and the like.Shop for accessories
You can pick up everything you need to get started making beaded and wire jewellery on eBay. Accessories such as jewellery soldering kits and silver crimps for headpins and beaded necklaces are affordably priced compared to shopping in brick and mortar craft stores. They're often available in bulk, saving you even more money.Create great gifts
Creating unique pieces of jewellery as gifts is a great way to spoil somebody special, like your mum or your sister. Tiaras decorated with shiny gold beads are a popular choice for weddings, so make a gift to remember.
