Print this Learning Center Idea

STEP TWO: choosing some beads and other fun items

Check out our glass beads, Swarovski pendants, wooden pendants and freshwater pearls.

STEP THREE: choosing the clasps

Select a clasp for your design.

STEP FOUR: choosing the findings

Select the open jump rings and head pins and eye pins for your design. Also be sure to browse through our crimp tubes, crimp covers and crimp ends.

STEP FIVE: tools and wire needed

You will need a crimper tool, a cutter and flat nose pliers if you are using a very small crimp. It is easier to open and close a jump ring with two chain nose pliers when you attach a charm or a small pendant. You will also need a cutter and round nose pliers to make a loop at the head pin or eye pin when creating dangles. Select the tools and jewelry wire that will work best for your design.


STEP SIX: assemble everything together

To finish your jewelry, you will need to crimp the wire. Check out our step by step instructions or our informative handy tip video.
