The Art of Making Jewelry With Wire
The art of wire jewelry is a craft that dates back to biblical times. Pieces of wire jewelry have been found in the Egyptian pyramids and tombs of the Pharaohs!
With the wide array of wire and beads available in craft stores and on line in today's world, the pieces of jewelry that can be made are as endless as they are beautiful.
Trust me, I know of wire's addictive powers, so be careful, because once you get started, the sky is the limit to what you can create.
When you start out making wire jewelry, you may feel a little awkward, for lack of a better word. Learning how to twist and manuever the wire is something you will get better at the more you do it. I promise you that if you give it time, it will become like second nature to you.

Supplies Needed To Make Wire Jewelry
When you make wire jewelry, you will only need a few supplies to get started and most of them are inexpensive. I personally wouldn't over-invest in a craft unless I was sure I liked it first so perhaps starting out simple is best.
There are many jewelry tool kits to select from online and in stores. I would recommend a local craft store for selecting a kit because you could use a 40% off coupon as this will probably the most expensive thing you have to buy in order to begin.
Jewelry tool kits mostly with the same compilation of about six different tools. As long as you have the basics, you should be good to go. In other words, I wouldn't buy the pieces separately because it would be too expensive.
