  1. Must-Have Jewelry Making Supplies for Beginners by Moms & Crafters

From the website: “One of my primary reasons for creating this list was the realization that my crafts might be expensive, without needing to be. Meaning, if you buy each supply for each craft, in a package of 100, to make only one, it’s not very cost-efficient (unless you’re making them for a party or class setting). However, if you have the basics handy and only need to get the few “special” supplies for that project, each one can cost pennies!”

  1. How to use Necklace Ends to Finish Jewelry by Make & Fable

From the website: “Necklace ends (sometimes referred to as calottes) are used to end thin cords and beading wires when making jewelry, allowing you to add a clasp.
