Tools and Techniques

Some of my every day tools and findings
  • Jump rings- To open, hold your jump rings with two pliers twisting one side forward and the other side back softly don't pull apart or your jump ring wont go back together tight.
  • Lobster claws- there are many sizes of claws used for necklaces, watches, and bracelets and chain I love them because they create such a strong hold on your finished jewelry piece.
  • Charms and pendants- You can use them alone or combine to embellish other jewelry pieces.I love to add them on the ends of my earrings
  • Chain extender- Is to add length to your necklace
  • Bead fix- Yes this is like a super glue but I like it better you can find it at most craft stores, I use it after I have my bracelet tied I add a SMALL drop of glue on the knot and slip it into the center of my bead so that it hides the knot, so remember to have a bead that has a hole so you can use this technique
  • 1mm elastic- This is my favorite size elastic because it wont break easily, the life time of the 8mm elastic is much longer than that of 5mm, but I do like the 8mm for watches. If you are creating something with smaller beads like seed beads use the 8mm elastic
