Here are a few things every jewelry maker should have first before making their own necklace.

2. Wire or cord – now the next most important part of jewelry making is the wire or cord which will be used to string together your pendants and other parts of the jewelry. The quality of your necklace highly depends on the wire or cord that you choose. If your chosen string happens to break easily, you can lose all of your beads and you may have to start over. Otherwise, you can also choose chains for your necklace. Unfortunately, chains are harder to hide so you need to pick a good chain that you can actually be seen wearing. The chain can get tarnished easily too.
4. Pliers – if you’ll be making a complicated type of necklace with all the pearls and beads, you’ll need pliers to manipulate the wire or cord. These cannot be easily warped to your favored shape so you’ll need the help of metal equipment. Pliers will help you wrap the wire around beads and ensure the safety of your main objects. Special pliers for jewelry can be also bought at jewelry display shops.
5. Tweezers – creating a beaded necklace can be pretty hard if you have big fingers. The only way this is possible is if you decide to use a loupe and a magnifier to help you string the beads. Otherwise, tweezers really help to handle the beads while making the necklace.
