There are so many products out there for jewelry making that it can be overwhelming at times, especially if you are new to the world of jewelry making and trying to learn about the essentials. Having a little knowledge about certain handy little products can make all the difference.
I made a necklace and a video to introduce you to a couple of my favorite handy products that I have continued to use throughout the years. Pinch bails are endlessly useful for attaching pendants to necklaces, especially crystals and stones. Clamshells are a breeze to use and allow a very clean and finished look for ending your jewelry when working with fibers such as ribbon, wirelace, silk string, or satin cord.
Take a few minutes to watch this video where I show you how to use both of these products as I put together this cute & simple necklace. You can find the materials list below.
