Along with jewellery findings, and of course the beads themselves, jewellery making supplies are one of the key ingredients behind all craft projects, and here at The Bead Shop we have hand-picked our jewellery supplies range to make your crafting experience that little bit easier. From important jewellery making equipment like jewellery making tools and jewellery glue such as e6000 glue, to beading thread like rattail, coloured cotton, leather cord, craft wire and a variety of necklace chains and specialist threads like fireline beading thread – our comprehensive collection of jewellery making supplies includes absolutely everything you need to get started.
One of our favourite things about being enthusiastic jewellery makers is building our own jewellery making supplies essentials toolbox. There is nothing more satisfying than opening up your Pandora’s Box of jewellery making supplies and diving in to see what you can create with the jewellery materials you have. To keep your collection organised, try one of our wonderful bead storage boxesto get you started. In addition, if you don’t have a bead mat or two in your toolbox you’ll soon see how much of a lifesaver this piece of jewellery equipment can be for runaway beads!
Your jewellery supplies collection can then be augmented with jewellery making tools such as jewellery pliers to help you squash crimps beads, crimp covers and open up jump rings and split rings. Round nose pliers are valuable when bending or trimming wire for jewellery making such as memory wire, or beadalon wire. They also help to create perfectly looped eye pins and head pins.
Vital Jewellery materials
Beading needles also come in handy when stringing Swarovski beads, pearl beads and letter beads, but remember that since each needle is designed for a specific purpose, some are better at certain things than others. As much as we love jewellery making, it can sometimes be fussy and delicate work that your hands alone cannot cope with. Sometimes you just need a bit of extra help from some specialist jewellery making equipment, particularly when it comes to something fiddly like hand-knotting thread or getting a knot out of chain. Our comprehensive range of beading tools are essential jewellery making supplies for every keen beader!
