    Thank you, I was honestly surprised at how well it turned out! Do you remember those tutorials that I mentioned earlier? I followed this one and adapted the colours and bead sizes:

    I made earrings to go with it too, but I realised afterward when I went to take the pic that the cream beads were actually slightly yellow, so I have to remedy that :p. I'm quite chuffed with how well the small beads to, because I nicked them off of a necklace that I 'rescued' from Oxfam.

    No I didn't see the tutorials you mentioned earlier, but I've gone now to look at the one you gave now.

    You really started off with what looks like something very difficult, well done you, it's beautiful! And that's a good idea, recycling old beads, I do that too.

  • If you want to learn how to make jewellery then this is really a creative job you can get so much benefit by learning this online. But before that you must know about the products that are available in market like jewellery making tools, aluminium display tins, jewelery making tweezers.

    Anyone know the cheapest place to buy charms and the different coloured and guages of wire? I've bought some very cheap stuff to practice with but it only comes in 2.5m rolls so not very practical :(

    Hi Savvy

    I get my wire from Ebay, much longer rolls on there.

    It's really empowering when you realise that you can fix those broken bits of jewellery that you have littering the jewellery box, isn't it? I've had some pieces for a few years, and just never got around to figuring out how to fix them. Now, I can just pop in a new jump ring or a clasp and Bob's your uncle!
